Minister FM News reported late last month about yet another city in England, this time York, possibly installing permanent perimeter security bollards to protect its citizens and tourists on central city streets. The article was entitled “Bollard plan to protect York from terror attacks”.
Permanent security bollards are being considered for Parliament Street where average homes prices are near $2MM as well as near the entrance to York Racecourse at Racecourse and Knavesmire Roads. Sliding security bollards are also in the plans for other highly trafficked streets within City Centre.
These preventative steps are based on recommendations from counter terrorism units as well as the police amid safety concerns. The hope is to have installation complete by the time holiday shoppers crown the streets at the end of the year.
York is located in the northeastern part of England. It is a popular tourist attraction and is know for York Minster Cathedral, York Castle, and for its medieval city walls, among other highlights.
We have previously reported on several English cities installing perimeter security bollards. Among them, for your reference, are:
- “Counter Terrorism Activities Heightened in Cambridge England” which discussed protecting King’s Parade.
- “Perimeter Security Bollards Make News In England Once More” – Manchester England
- “More Counter Terrorist Activity Noted In England Last Week” – Winchester England
- “Security Bollards Make The News Again In England” – Liverpool England
