This crossing has been barriered off for months now. It is an extremely dangerous spot to cross even with the functional crossing as it’s right on the bend and by a junction where cars often are speeding- clearly a vehicle has driven straight across and flattened the bollard this demonstrates just how dangerous it is. Whilst the blue barrier is still in place and bollard flat it cannot be used forcing people to cross here for the shop etc at even more risk.
Thank you for your report, it will be reviewed by the appropriate team.

The barriers and traffic cones are now all over the place, bearly visible yo the cars and making the road more dangerous than it would have been without it.

The barriers are now broken and are in middle of the damaged road island. Been like this for months now. It is a danger to pedestrians who use this island to cross the road. It needs a priority repair now.
