Spotted on the cycle paths: someone has been at work in Dumfries adorning various bollards and other bits of street furniture with crocheted covers.
According to the labels, this is the work of the Bollard (and Chicane) Protection Authority.
We’re not sure that bollards need protecting from cyclists – but we know that cyclists need protecting from bollards, so we’re delighted if anything is done to make barriers in the cycle paths more visible to cyclists and pedestrians
And they also add something to the gaiety of the town – much needed on a February day!
Sadly, it we’ve had reports that some of the reflective covers have already disappeared since they were put in place. If we really want more visible bollards we’ll have to ask the council for a more permanent solution. But we applaud the effort
