Ballycastle Marina Safety Barrier - Red for Danger

There are two gates stopping small children running
 from the popular sand-pit onto the marina quay.

The keeper is missing ..

.. and the spring closure isn't working

I reported the problem to the harbour master's office and 
a piece of cord effected a temporary safety measure.

Two weeks later the cord has gone 
so I reported the problem a second time.

The gate was lying open today as no repairs had been carried out. On the basis that it's better to be safe than sorry, perhaps the responsible council official should get the problem resolved, even if only on a temporary basis.

Chain and padlock

Why did it take so long to effect this temporary safety measure?
