Manchester City Council

Roads & transport Bollards

Fixed, removable, automatic and lit bollards

We are responsible for maintaining fixed, removable, automatic and lit bollards on council land including public open spaces, parks and highway.

We are not responsible for bollards on private land, please contact the land owner.

Automatic bollards are used in the city centre to restrict traffic flow through pedestrianised areas.  Only emergency services and authorised vehicles have access during the day.

You can apply for a pass if you need regular access during restricted times. When passing through the bollards you should not tail gate the vehicle in front as the bollards will rise again immediately after a vehicle has passed.
