Energy-Absorbing Bollards Protecting Yarra Trams
by: NJM Group Marketing on
Road accidents can happen anywhere and anytime. In Melbourne, a police car and a No. 70 Tram had a significant collision on Tuesday afternoon, causing considerable damage to the car and the tram.
The police vehicle collided into an Energy-Absorbing Bollard. Australian Bollards engineer these bollards which absorb shock and serve the main purpose of reducing impact, injury and fatalities should these accidents occur. Thanks to these risk-reducing features of the bollards, the police officers, the tram driver, its passengers and pedestrians were safe and the only result of the collision was a disruption in tram services of the No. 70 Route.
Police officers play an integral role in providing security and safety for citizens in today's society so that they can continue to live their lives in peace.
Australian Bollards’ High Impact Energy-Absorbing Bollards are capable of stopping a 1600kg passenger-car at speeds up to 60 kph in high-speed hazard areas. Our bollards are specifically used in places such as bus and tram stops, and busy areas around roadside dining areas, childcare centres, school crossings, parking lots and shopping centres where there is significant vehicle and pedestrian activity.
