Update: a week later I notice it had been repaired with gaffer tape, see #107112. But also on checking the highways website again I read that a rider had been injured by the bollard stump three days after I'd reported it - see their ref: 312106.

They remind me of the shop racks at #11982.

It ought to be possible to make a much better job of this.

Basic "Sheffield Stands" like these are much better than the wheel benders of old, but bikes don't lean to them very well with the result of leaning over and looking untidy.
