The junction of union st and great Guildford strret is a nightmare, ever since the pavement got extended and big bell shaped bollards installed there has been numerous cars, lorries and coaches getting stuck on them causing mayhem, also vehicles have to take the turning a lot wider making drivers encroach on the to on coming traffic, it's a lot worse than it used to be, oh and not to mention the way the delivery drivers on their scooters zoom down the street, it's a serious accident waiting to happen, rant over 😂

Given the 'Unsuitable for HGVs' sign what are lorries and coaches doing in Union Street?

That sign says not suitable for left hand turns in to get Guilford street but drivers take no heed, it's an absolute nightmare, iv witnessed a recovery lorry having to lift cars off of the bollards, they ere difficult to see when pedestrians are waiting to cross.
