Passengers have been warned that buses will be skipping a stop until Wednesday due to a damaged bollard.

The issue with the Watford High Street bollard means that the 20, 320, and 322 are not able to stop at  Stop B (outside where Wilko used to be).

According to an “emergency passenger notice” issued by Intalink, which manages Hertfordshire transport services on behalf of the council, this is expected to last until Wednesday morning.

Anyone looking to board from the town centre is asked to use Watford Clarendon Road Stop S instead, near the hotel, which is a 13-minute walk away according to Google Maps.

The bollards were beset by problems in December and January as they repeatedly malfunctioned, forcing the council to deactivate some until they could be repaired.

The High Street bus stop was skipped on multiple days during that time.

A Hertfordshire County Council spokesperson said: "One of the bollards at Watford High Street  is currently broken and buses are having to divert around this.

"We’d like to apologise to bus users for any inconvenience caused by the disruption to the normal bus routes.

"Repairs will take place tomorrow and the bollards should be working as normal by the early hours of Wednesday."
