Safeguarding Australian tourist hotspots
by: Australian Bollards on
Following recent terror attacks across the globe, Gold Coast council has installed bollards in at Queen Street Mall with plans to install more bollards in other tourist hotspots. The main locations being discussed are the Esplanade, Broadbeach and Coolangatta.
The bollards are retractable which will remain underground to allow easy foot traffic movement. Then when needed, the bollards will be deployed as a protective measure. Police and council workers will control when these bollards are in use.
The safer we can create our tourist locations and public spaces, the stronger we can stand against these potential threats.
We need to ensure our bollard installations can protect against VBIED attacks as well as giving city scapes a nice complexion, with soft approaches to hard security.
Strategic placement of bollards in gaps between the road and footpaths can prevent any vehicle from entering the footpath at high speeds.
The implementation of VBIED bollards being installed are strong enough to prevent a high-speed truck.
