      Good photo. I've never seen re-grounded bollards!

      Best I know, nothing can ever be grounded well enough from a safety point of view, because if a massive surge occurs, you want it to go to ground as directly and efficiently as possible. Otherwise, it might arc onto anything.

      The other purpose is to draw off any static that might otherwise build up in the equipment and racks etc.

      The RF hot-spot effect is apparently another reason for seemingly excessive grounding of cell sites.
