Further to my previous post in May 2019 regarding the same problem. Another accident occurred here early evening on Friday 15th November. As previously reported there have been many accidents over the years involving cars crashing into the raised concrete island where the speed bumps are in the middle of the road. The most recent accident caused significant damage to the car and involved the Police spending a long time waiting for a recovery vehicle and diverting the rush hour traffic around the location. The numerous accidents over the years have caused extensive damage demolishing part of the concrete structure and the lighting. This is the 4th serious accident so far this year that I am aware of. I am aware that this type of island was fitted as an experiment and no more of a similar style have been installed. Can you advise what plans there are to reinstate/repair/replace the island. Given the new development under construction virtually opposite I would hope consideration is being given to replacing it in a safer location and with a more appropriate structure. Over the years I have become accustomed to picking up and removing hub caps and other parts of vehicles that have hit the speed bumps/island structure when passing through and would like a more appropriate structure to be in place to prevent future accidents.

Is there any update on this please? The lighting inside the bollards is not working properly meaning the island is not well illuminated at night.
