Posts erected on the verge adjacent to the higway

Somebody has very recently erected a line of substantial timber posts about 2' out of the ground with reflectors along the edge of the verge alongside March House. I was under the impression that to place obstructions on the verge was not permissible

  • Thank you for your report. It is permissible to install wooden posts on the Highway verge, however, there are stipulations which are; they need to be installed by us and this will be at a cost to the person who has asked for them to be put in. To the best of my knowledge, I have no records of Highway having installed these bollards, so I have written to the adjacent property asking them to remove the posts within 28 days. This letter has been put in the post today, however, i cannot confirm who has installed these bollards.
