Fishergate plinth claims another motorist
The infamous bollards are at it again.
Pictures of a BMW car stranded on a Fishergate plinth have once again raised questions over the safety of the shared-space scheme in Preston.
This latest accident, at the top end of Fishergate, near its junction with Church Street, comes after complaints were made about the new road layout outside Preston Minster.
The plinths used to home lampposts, but traffic, and especially busses, found it difficult to pass, and the post was soon hit. You can read about that accident here.With the lamp leaning dangerously, it was removed in the summer, and was replaced recently with a traffic cone.
