Secret Scotland

If it's secret, and in Scotland…

Down again – the bollard with a season ticket to the repair shop

I’m beginning to realise that this concrete and steel reinforced bollard is no match for the delivery lorries to the small row of shops nearby, and my first thought that it was never repaired was wrong too.

Far from just lying broken, it looks as if this poor bollard is just victimised, and doesn’t survive long before the lorries gently ‘persuade’ it to go away.

I used to think it was just neglected, but after paying closer attention and taking the odd pic, it seems this one just enjoys the repair cycle, and only lasts a few weeks after each repair, before it throws itself under another lorry.

One of my route changes brought me here last night, although I had already noticed this guy had been beaten up and left lying at an angle last week.
