Island Roads is nearing the end of a comprehensive programme to replace nearly 400 traffic Island bollards across the Island.

The new bollards use the latest in reflective technology so do not need to be illuminated. This means they are easy to maintain and do not cause light pollution.

The work has been undertaken in the winter months when traffic is lighter in order to reduce disruption.

Dave Haynes, Island Roads powered apparatus manager said: “These new bollards meet the latest highways requirements but have the added benefit of being more economical to maintain and also do not contribute to light pollution which we know is an important issue for many people on the Island.

“The replacement programme is part of ongoing work to upgrade signage and street furniture across the network so residents can expect to see further improvement throughout 2017.”
