Flexible Protection for Reservoir
by: NJM Group Marketing on
Australian Bollards recently installed rows of bollards along the edges of a concrete bridge at the O’Shannassay Reservoir. The flexible design stops vehicles with minimal damage to the footings, vehicle, and the bollard itself.
In addition to keeping vehicles from accidentally driving off the bridge, they also keep them from being swept away by floods. The bollards also break up the flow of floodwater, reducing the intensity of the current downstream.
O’Shannassy Reservoir is an important part of Victoria’s water infrastructure. It was named after Sir John O’Shannassy, the 2nd Premier of Victoria. The mountainous terrain of the Yarra Ranges provides an ideal place to store water and efficiently supply it to the surrounding area.
Whether it’s in the middle of the city or an out-of-the-way rural location, Australian Bollards can provide a safety solution that suits your needs. For more information, visit our website or call +613 9459 3488 today.
