Bollard on top of road island missing

Because the bollard is missing presumably after the recent gales the light warning of the traffic calming bumps and the raised island is no longer functioning meaning that vehicles leaving the village travelling north are unable to see the obstruction in the road at night.

Any update on this please? I have just removed another car part from the road that has presumably hit the unlit bollard overnight.

Attached are pictures of the traffic island in the centre of the A4095 on Heyford Road, Kirtlington, OX5 3FS. A car it the northern bollard on Monday evening (15 January) and almost knocked it over. It also left a considerable amount of debris around he island which needs to be cleared away.
It seems that this island is regularly hit by vehicles and I request that something be done to improve it as soon as possible.
The island and the speed humps next to it serve a useful purpose in slowing down some of the traffic that enters the village of Kirtlington from the north. If it was not there, the road would be a drag strip, even after the introduction of the 20mph speed limit a few months ago. However, the configuration of the island/road humps is not good. Too many vehicles either (i) hit it from the northern side or (ii) swerve dangerously close to the pavement when approaching from the southern side because of the deviation in the road.
I would like to request that some work be done to determine whether there is a better configuration that would slow traffic in both directions but would not be a dangerous obstacle.
