Broken bollards

Tudor Drive and Dukes Avenue were designed as wide roads in the expectation that they would lead to a new river crossing but that plan was shelved and we were left with a fast road to nowhere. The boy-racers of Ham love this and speed along recklessly.

The Council responded by building a chicane and a traffic island by the junction with Dysart Avenue. This is reasonably successful but there are a few racers who see this more as a challenge than a restraint and they still speed through. Sometimes they are not as good at driving as they thought that they were and the bollards take a battering.
