Ready for Action

Our next target has been selected, and intensive preparation is under way to map unloved and barely visible bollards (and chicanes), while a crack team of crafters are even now whipping up the high-tech and scientifically visible bollard cosies and chicane wraps needed.

The pictures below give you an idea of the scale of this problem. Speeding cyclists have already taken lumps out of some of these neglected items of street furniture – and have come off badly themselves. We cannot stand idly by! We WILL protect the bollards (and chicanes) of our target town.

bollards
grey concrete – what could be less cheerful?

Blending in with the background, left to grow moss… it’s no wonder cyclists struggle to see this pair
chicane
Painted black and all but buried in leaves … this pair of chicanes stands little chance against a speeding cyclist
chicanes
Dull grey metal in dusk … poor chicanes don’t stand a chance
