“The Department of Primary Industry and Resources installed 90 bollards along the edge of the car park at the Rum Jungle Lake Reserve, located 3 kms west of Batchelor, Northern Territory,” explains Scott Downs, Manager of Technical Projects for the Department of Primary Industry and Resources for the NT Government. The posts installed are 100 mm recycled plastic bollards from Replas. The robust 100 mm bollard comprises a recycled plastic profile with a pyramid-shaped top and features a routed collar at the top. Replas bollards are the ideal solution wherever rigid barriers are required to define boundaries or deter vehicles and pedestrians. For ease of handling, the 100 mm bollard is partially-hollowed to reduce its weight and has four holes in the base to fill with concrete when installing. As is the case with all recycled plastic products, these bollards are virtually maintenance free; they will not split, rot, crack, or ever need painting. A bonus for Northern Territory? Termite resistant! “The reserve is a popular area used by locals and visitors,” says Scott. “The bollards will serve to maintain a barrier between the car park and a rehabilitated rock dump from the former uranium mine Rum Jungle Creek South. Local Kungarakan Aboriginal labour was hired through Ironbark Aboriginal Corporation to complete the job.” Recycled plastic bollards from Replas are more than a barrier, they are a safe alternative that diverts waste from landfill, while also holding up in the harsh Northern Territory environment.
