These workmen are installing bollards to stop people from parking on the pavement outside the Royal Hospital in Belfast.  

 They are cleaning up at the end of the day.  

How long do you think it will be before they realise that they can’t get the van out to go home?  

This is a real photograph…!

    That is too funny.

    Hate to spoil the party…Many bollards are made with removable inserts. A simple insertion of a key, removal of a pin and the whole thing lifts out. I have had a number of these installed where we need service workers to bring vehicles to places that we don’t allow people to park.

    But it DOES make a funny picture!

    I’m so disappointed! I never knew that!

    Darn that logical, yet cheeky, electrician with all the answers. 😉

    hee, hee. I’ve seen that one before, still funny though. Afraid I thought the same thing about removable bollards with a key, would be really funny it they weren’t though.

    I am so sorry to hear about the bollards being removable! Schadenfreude on my part (nasty me!) Love, R.
