  • What a Load of Bollards Standard bollards are fitted with a photo-luminescent / reflective high contrast stripe that is colour coded to guide you to an information node at key intersections. The stripe reduces possible injuries to both pedestrians and vehicles. The bollard head is replaced by an information dial with a tactile high contrast coloured direction arrow. Twisting the dial directs the arrow towards important city land- marks. Dial can be gripped and easily twisted by people with poor hand dexterity.
