Australian Bollards - Cycleway Barrier Solution
by: NJM Group Marketing on
The Australian standard to keep cyclists safe require them to be able to see across the inside of horizontal curves, where a path passes under a road and over vertical crest curves a sufficient distance to allow them to stop or take action if required to avoid a fellow cyclist, a pedestrian or an obstacle in their path.
These barriers are Austroad complaint. Austroads is the main organisation of Australasian road transport and traffic agencies. Austroads members are responsible for running over 900,000 kilometres of roads valued at more than $250 billion representing the single largest community asset in Australia and New Zealand. The barriers if required to can meet the Australian standards requirement for bridges.
The barriers all come with a entry/exit funnel and offset rub rail, they are available in mild steel and stainless steel with a wide range of coating options available. Bolt down and in-ground mounting options are also offered. They are a fully welded design that is 100% tamper proof. They have been heavily tested in tough conditions and environments Australia-wide for over 20 years.
The partial barrier fence and the full barrier fence both have a desirable height of about 1.4 metres, the minimum is 1.2 metres where the severity of the hazard is considered to be too low.
