A member of the public has once again removed the reinstalled Wilwood Road traffic bollards in Halton Hills.

The incident occurred sometime between Saturday night and Sunday morning (July 31-Aug 1) and the Town is asking anyone with information to contact them or Halton Police to report it.

The purpose of these bollards was meant to reduce the operating speed along the roadway, which was in response to various speed complaints that staff have received in the past.

“Traffic bollards are proven and effective in reducing operating speeds. Unlike more intrusive traffic calming measures, bollards allow the passage of emergency vehicles and are seasonally removed to allow for effective winter maintenance on busy roadways,” said the Town of Halton Hills on Twitter when they reinstalled them.

“The Town will not tolerate theft of any kind and would like to kindly remind the public that anyone caught damaging or stealing Town property is subject to and may be prosecuted. Any member of the public that witnesses this type of behaviour is encouraged to contact the Town.”

As a result of the bollards being removed, the Town said today (Aug. 4) that it will not be reinstalling them or any additional traffic calming measures on Wildwood Road and will instead focus traffic calming efforts elsewhere.
