Report a problem with a bollard

Bollards are used to restrict or prevent vehicular access to certain areas to ensure public safety. Illuminated bollards are also designed to control the flow of traffic on the roads and help keep motorists, pedestrians and cyclists safe when moving around our city.

If you’ve discovered a broken, damaged or missing bollard, please report it to us. To investigate the issue, we will need to know:

  • An accurate location (including landmarks, house numbers or road junctions)
  • The ID number, usually found on a sticker or painted on the column (if available)
  • A detailed description of the problem

Please ensure you do not put yourself or anyone else in danger when obtaining details about the fault.

We ask that you provide us with your contact details in case we need to ask you for more information. You can also receive status updates of your report by providing this information.
