Bollards not operational - update required

Reported in the Bollards or railings category anonymously at 20:36, Tuesday 14 May 2019

Received by Buckinghamshire County Council moments later

Reference report number 40097315 The bollards have failed and keep failing because there is possible ducting failure beneath the ground. This issue is being looked at and that is the reason why a few weeks ago the bollards would remain 'up' and not allow buses through as the wiring was damaged. We believe that the wiring caused the issue and is now in need of replacing, due to the fact that the bollards on some occasions would not lower when buses were present meant that TfB had to go out and leave the bollards in the ground.

This anonymous update was received from the Council 24th April - Please note that it doesn't detail how they are going to fix it and, more importantly, when. They have not operated at all for a month now.

Please can you update as to the progress of this issue and the proposed date for it to be resolved.
