So, someone has put the lock back into position but hasn’t closed the lock... any reason why? Can the lock be properly closed before the pole ends up being removed to let lorries through and left laying on the pavement again.

This is a temporary measure to hold the post. The pad lock will be renewed at the time further works will take place to secure the post. Our contractor has been instructed for this repair.

Tag-Dah! As expected, the pole has been removed and is laying on floor. How long until you can pop gown B&Q to buy a new lock please?

Taking a hell of a long time to fix a lock. Do you think it may happen this side of Xmas?

Apologies for the delay in resolving this issue. We have an ongoing problem regarding unauthorised removal of the special padlocks and intentional damage to the bollards and other fixings. We are working with our contractor to identify a long-term solution, and will continue to inspect the barriers every week and complete temporary repairs.
