Securing Melbourne: EABs and Handrails for Safer Transit

The city of Melbourne has demonstrated a steadfast commitment to enhancing public safety through strategic infrastructure improvements. Key to these advancements are the installations of handrails and Energy Absorbing Bollards (EABs) at tram stops by Australian Bollards, which significantly elevate the safety and aesthetic quality of tram stops and other public areas. This initiative underscores Melbourne's holistic approach to public safety, integrating functional infrastructure with urban aesthetics to create spaces that are not only safe but also visually appealing. Our dedication to utilizing high-quality, durable materials ensures that these installations provide long-term safety benefits to residents and visitors alike.

Safety and Accessibility: Enhanced Handrail Installations
Tram stop number 134 on Park Street at Fitzroy Street now features newly installed handrails, a project spearheaded by Australian Bollards. These handrails are specifically designed to enhance mobility and accessibility for all commuters, particularly aiding those with physical disabilities and the elderly. Made from corrosion-resistant stainless steel, the handrails offer enduring strength and support in Melbourne’s dynamic weather conditions. Their strategic placement at busy public transit points ensures that they serve their purpose effectively, providing a grip and stability for those boarding and alighting trams. Additionally, these handrails are vital in preventing mishaps and falls, making public transport safer and more accessible for everyone.

Proactive Protection: The Role of Energy Absorbing Bollards (EABs)

Energy Absorbing Bollards (EABs) have been a part of Melbourne’s urban landscape for some time, with our installations like those at tram stop 3 near Bourke Street Mall highlighting their importance in maintaining safety in bustling areas. These bollards are designed to withstand and absorb impacts from vehicles, making them an essential safety feature in pedestrian-heavy areas. Their robust construction prevents accidental vehicular encroachments into pedestrian zones and pathways. The presence of EABs is particularly critical in protecting pedestrian pathways, and public gathering spots, thereby ensuring that public spaces are secure from both accidents and intentional harm.
