Along the road reserve on Wakelin Place in the cosy residential area of Redwood, New Zealand, Christchurch City Council had to replace a row of worn-out wooden bollards that were rotting, and they chose a Replas product. The new-look recycled plastic 100 mm bollards, 40 in all, will last many years longer than the old timber ones, and they look right at home in this quiet neighbourhood setting.

The 2011 earthquake impacted lightly on Redwood, but there was still some liquifaction, burst water mains, and damage to chimneys and fences. Today the suburb is really looking up, especially where these streetside bollards are planted.
