Protection in Melbourne’s famous laneways
by: Australian Bollards on
Melbourne is famous for its hidden lane ways.
Cobbled streets, quirky graffiti art, exquisite coffee shops and hidden restaurant treasures are all common things you’ll find when taking a wonder down them.
But despite these lanes being very narrow, cars still travel down them.
For this reason, bollards are heavily desired to protect restaurant goers and shoppers from the traffic.
Popular Italian Restaurant, Maccaroni Trattoria Italiana, is located in Manchester Lane, tucked away in the middle of the city.
To protect staff, patrons and the owner's livelihood, Australian Bollards assisted in protecting the building front from the closely passing traffic.
When the restaurant is closed and unattended overnight, the bollards will protect from ram-raid attacks.
Our team installed 1300mm high, 114mm diameter sub-surface bollards to provide a high level of protection to their restaurant.
Now they can focus on creating some of the best Italian food Melbourne has to offer with the peace of mind that their restaurant is protected.
Australian Bollards has a history of lane way protection such as this installation at Flinders Lane.
And with so much construction happening in the city, bollards are a great solution for protection around gantries.
Gantries are bridge like structures which support machinery and equipment.
This is commonly used in CBD construction to allow pedestrian traffic flow and large machinery access on site. But with this comes large risks with heavy materials built over head passing foot and vehicle traffic on temporary structures.
Bollards are the ideal solution to stop an out of control car hitting gantry posts to ensure an accident doesn't turn into a catastrophe.
