Australian Bollards - Making Safe Melbourne's Busy Roads
by: NJM Group Marketing on
Australian Bollards Roadside Services and Saferoads Division has recently had the opportunity of installing its Australian-made AB-EAB Energy Absorbing Bollard at Tram Stop 25 located at St Kilda Road in Melbourne’s CBD to protect pedestrians and public transport commuters from distracted or reckless drivers.
Designed and manufactured to save lives, the Energy Absorbing Bollard (EAB) is engineered to meet IWA14-1 and PAS68 standards. This means the EAB is capable of halting a 1.7 tonne vehicle travelling at the speed of up to 70 kilometres an hour, making it compliant with road safety barrier systems and device standards in the AS/NZS 3845 (1999).
Regarded as the ideal traffic and pedestrian safety solution, Australian Bollards Energy Absorbing Bollards have been devised to keep Australian streets and suburbs safe from unfortunate incidents that may cause damage to property and harm pedestrians.
This game changing solution enables increased safety for places such as sidewalks, footpaths, as well as heavy foot traffic areas like tram stops, restaurants and shopfronts.
As Melbourne is ranked at the top of the most liveable cities in the world, the installation of the EAB at the St Kilda Road tram stop means that pedestrians travelling via the tram and along St Kilda Road are ensured minimised risk of injuries that may occur from oncoming vehicles.
Places including Magnolia at St. Boulevard, the National Gallery of Victoria, Korean Consulate Melbourne, and even surrounding areas such as the Shrine of Remembrance and the Royal Botanic Gardens are well known and frequently visited by the community, where added security is extremely vital.
As Melbourne is considered to be one of the most beautiful places in Australia to visit, typically attracting tourists from all around the world, there is no better way to feel safer than with Australian Bollards shock absorbing solutions.
