NEW bollards have been installed outside a shop after complaints about “dangerous” parking on the pavement.

Several vehicles — including a Royal Mail van — have been spotted parked close to the corner of Arnold Crescent and Adwick Road Premier convenience store, where they are double yellow lines.

Mexborough councillor Sean Gibbons said he hoped the new bollards, which were installed on Monday, would stamp out the problems.

“We have received a number of complaints and concerns from residents concerning community safety in this very busy entrance point into Mexborough,” he said.

 “These safety bollards will hopefully make it safer for both pedestrians and drivers on this very busy junction. 

“We are continuing to work closely with Doncaster Council’s highways team on other safety prevention measures and are closely monitoring progress.”
