Roadworks and a new bollard

These roadworks at the junction of Union Street and Market Street have been going on for a while, but my attention was drawn to them recently by the new bright shiny yellow bollard that has appeared amongst the cones.

I've never seen a bollard like that before. I will have to scour Nottingham to see if we have any. Hyde might have the first one of a new design for testing. You'll have to have a word with the workmen.

Isn't *bollard* a lovely word?

The yellow bollards have to be put there now to cover EEC law 45637, paragrapgh G, section 4.25, line four 'If you have multi coloured bollards and signs then you must also put a yellow bollard sign there too so as to advise people that there are warning signs there of other colours and also a yellow sign must be put there so that you do not upset people that like the colour yellow and you go against their human rights not to have there 'bestus' colour on show to'
