The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Looking Back -

The saga of elec­tronic bol­lards in a city cen­tre street took an­other twist – af­ter it emerged a se­cu­rity guard had been hired to sit be­side them all day to let driv­ers through. Be­mused on­look­ers watched as a man sat in a plas­tic chair , only get­ting up and man­u­ally low­er­ing the bol­lards if mo­torists had a right to en­ter . The two ris­ing bol­lards had been in­stalled in Long Cause­way, along­side eight fixed ones, in May, months af­ter Peter­bor­ough City Coun­cil chiefs first promised them in a bid to make pedes­tri­ans safer and stop driv­ers park­ing il­le­gally.
