That was exactly my reaction: if the bollard, which is within the white lines, is repeatedly getting hit it means that drivers are taking the corner too fast and veering out of the travel lane.

At least the bollard is taking the hit and presumably discouraging drivers from veering even more into the bike lane or not slowing down safely in the turn as they approach a pedestrian crossing. It shouldn't be difficult to keep between the white lines!

Removing the bollard because it keeps getting hit by inattentive or aggressive drivers misses the whole traffic calming point of the bollard.

I'm very glad staff have finally replaced it.

p.s. in Europe they tend to do this sort of thing even more aggressively with hard metal or concrete chicanes, not car-friendly soft wobbly plastic bollards.
