Greener Cities Towards A Greener Future
by: NJM Group Marketing on
Our need for greener cities has never been greater. All over the world, cities are now employing sustainable strategies to better help the environment and people who live in metropolitan areas.
Since the green movement and scientists’ undeniable evidence of climate change, electric trams are replacing vehicle traffic to reduce carbon emissions and pollution which characteristically comes from metropolises.
By planting green strips alongside tram tracks, cities further our green future by reducing the amount of heat emanating from buildings and other structures. They also add to and compliment nearby parks and areas. This can help transform a city’s aesthetics to better promote walking, pedestrian spaces and the positive use of public space.
Concrete street furniture is another addition to our green spaces. Street furniture now adorns our green public spaces to promote outdoor activities for city dwellers. These simple, architecturally aesthetic designs provide public seating and recreational use while also acting as bollards and public safety solutions.
Street furniture ranges from drinking fountains, park benches, bus shelters, flower pots, bike racks and tree grates. These additions to modern cities add livability and lifestyle without compromising the protection and safety of citizens commuting to work or visiting for leisure activities.
A perception of safety is also important in any busy city. Commuters and pedestrians don’t wan to be reminded of imminent danger as they get about their lives, which is why Australia Bollards designs and installs architecturally designed street furniture to ensure they complement the aesthetics of their surroundings. We call this a Soft Approach to Hard Security.
