Bollard vandalised and removed

Reported via iOS in the Roads/highways category anonymously at 21:36, Sat 18 June 2022

Sent to Oxfordshire County Council less than a minute later

The LTN bollard on Southfield has been removed, which is undermining the LTN trial and creating danger and uncertainty for those assuming that no cars will come through the filter. We need it replaced with something more robust and resilient to vandalism. Please replace quickly before someone gets hurt.

Council ref: 3606736

  • Somebody has restored it, but the fundamental problem remains,i.e,, the bollards can easily be removed and small cars can drive through between bollard anf planter. Please find a solution.

  • Please do not accuse anyone of vandalism unless you have evidence for that. The bollards must be flexible to allow emergency service vehicles through if someone is in danger. This may be the reason the bollard was removed and is the reason why it must not be stronger. Sadly this all shows how unworkable and pointless the LTN system is. I guess if we want quiet streets we should go and move to the countryside like most people do and then we won't all have to moan so much.

  • I know you from other online discussions and I'm sorry to hear that you think the LTNs are pointless and unworkable. I don't agree at all and will fight for the permanent implementation when the time comes. This is not only about quiet streets, though that is welcome, but about pollution, health, safety and residents' general wellbeing. I'm quite happy living in the city and won't be moving anywhere else, but we can do a lot better than has been the norm in Oxford, and there is ample evidence from around the world of creative and effective thinking around these issues. In my view, there is no going back.

  • Nope, this all shows that he LTNs don't work and need to be scrapped. Not sure why you see this is a "fight", we're all on the same side here.
