Rising Bollards

There I was attempting to cross the road near Parliament at a Pelican crossing and what do I come across but an anti ram rising bollard.

Yes it's truly amazing what we can achieve when we put great engineering minds to work, yes the rising bollard is hear to stay and maybe coming to a street or road near you.

With the threat of terrorism here to stay it is certainly a sign of these times when the authorities have to protect buildings from vehicles that may attempt to ram them.

This bollard itself is a solid cylindrical object that could probably stop a battle tank, it carries two yellow warning strips for the purpose of warning the law abiding citizen and driver.

Have to say do like the brick road way I would have thought tarmac would have been good enough for this part of the capital.
