Residents of Speedwell Rd. used to regard it as a haven of peace and tranquillity next to Calthorpe Park. Unfortunately, this isn’t so. Several times, drivers have failed to see the bollards which block access for vehicles, and have driven straight into them at night causing damage to cars, bollards and sometimes drivers and passengers. Another episode of this kind last week, had residents suggesting that perhaps the bollards could be painted in luminous colours to try to get drivers’ attention. Or maybe – since the bollards date back to when the whole area was fighting against invasion by clients of prostitutes cruising the streets by day and night – they aren’t needed any more, and could just be removed altogether?
