Bollards move still not working

TWO additional bollards have been placed on a stretch of footpath causing concern to safety campaigners – but they are still not preventing traffic from parking on the path.

For more than a year Todmorden Accident Prevention Council has been concerned about vehicles parking on the pavement at Burnley Road near the vet's and the Black Swan pub in the heart of Todmorden town centre.

At the council's last meeting it was reported that two additional bollards had been provided but since that at least one vehicle had been seen parked on the pavement.

The pub's staff had placed some chairs and tables in front of their premises which helpedc stop illegal parking but it had not solved the problem, members heard.
