WORK to repair this damaged traffic island has ground to a sudden halt.
In December the bollards on Manchester Road in Slaithwaite were damaged during an accident.
Kirklees Highways removed the bollards and centre pole and covered up the holes with a traffic cone weighed down by a sandbag.
But it’s been left unrepaired for more than a month.
One Marsden resident told the Examiner the upturned traffic cones were not a suitable warning to drivers of an obstacle along the dark road.
But Kirklees Highways say it will soon be fixed.
A spokeswoman said: “Both bollards and a centre pole on the traffic island were damaged in an accident last year and we plan to replace this by February 3 with new equipment.
“Temporary cones and signs are on the site as a safety measure in the meantime.”
