Camden Council south west of Sydney has installed a large number of Replas removable bollards at the Camden Showground. A total of 300 bollards in fact, which are taken out when vehicle access is needed into the ground’s normally restricted areas. The council has replaced the treated pine logs previously used with a tidier, more permanent barrier – popular 125 mm x 125 mm recycled plastic bollards that will never rot and require no painting.
To make these removable bollards that little bit extra fit for purpose, council staff designed a neat innovation. As an alternative to the usual padlock, a rectangular metal sleeve is placed over the protruding metal plate with a security screw inserted.
