Cressy St crash - Wayne Campbell from Deni Works begins to repair a traffic guard knocked over by a car on Saturday night.
Details on how an Edwardes St roundabout safety rail was knocked over are vague, with the matter not reported to police or Deni Works.
Wayne Campbell from Deni Works was repairing the safety rail on Monday morning and said it appeared a car had crashed into it.
A fair amount of glass was found on the footpath next to the dislodged railing, located on the Waring Gardens corner of the Cressy St and Edwardes St intersection.
Tyre marks extending from the east side of the roundabout, near the Pastoral Times building, continue across the roundabout and up onto the kerb.
Mr Campbell and works manager with Deni Works Jim Grant both agreed it would have taken a fair amount of force to dislodge the railing, which is concreted into the footpath. Cement footings for the railing were smashed.
Mr Grant said the damage to the car would be considerable.
An automatic sprinkler water pipe is located right next to where the fence post goes underground, but was fortunately not damaged.
The car also seems to have missed the power pole and a tree located near the footpath where some glass shards were found yesterday.
It is not known when the crash occurred.
Anyone with information is asked to contact police on 5881
