Metal bollard removed on Chalcot Square

Reported via iOS in the Non-Illuminated bollards category anonymously at 11:16, Thursday 2 May 2024

Sent to Camden Borough Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 5925005.

The metal bollard that previously restricted access to emergency services only at the corner of Chalcot Square (near Berkeley Rd) has been removed. As a result, large trucks/lorries and other vehicles are now using this area as a cut-through.

The area is unsuitable for heavy goods vehicles (HGVs), a concern that has escalated recently with instances of them reversing the wrong way down the 'no entry' on Chalcot Square.

Please can you urgently replace the bollard and ensure it’s securely fixed in place to prevent its removal or theft in the future. Although someone attempted to mark the area with a cone recently, that has since been moved too. Additionally, installing signage could help prevent further misuse of the space.

This area is frequented by local residents and visitors who utilise the benches, making it particularly hazardous to have vehicles passing by at close proximity. The increased traffic is also contributing to increased noise and pollution and potentially causing damage to the cobbles.
