Steve Sharpe, Team Leader City Centre Maintenance, says recycled plastic Brolga Bollards from Replas are the ‘bollard of choice’ for Mackay Regional Council in North Queensland. “They look great with the galvanised or stainless steel pipe through them so they can be spaced out a bit further and keep any unwanted vehicles out of where they shouldn’t be,” said Steve. The Brolga Bollard, named after the official bird emblem of Queensland, is tall and slender with an elegant profile. Equally at home or in wetland areas, recycled plastic bollards will not split, rot or crack in the harsh northern Queensland environment. The unique double wall construction of the Brolga Bollards offers more rigidity, adding to the strength of the installation. The hollow centre means the bollards are strong and extremely lightweight, making them cheaper to transport and install. “Also with them being made from recycled plastic, they never need after care and white ants don’t like them,” continued Steve. “It is also a way of our council Closing the Loop, as we collect the plastic in kerbside waste and buy it back in the form of bollards to be used all around our region.” Able to stand alone or in a fence, this Brolga Bollard galvanised rail fence is another great bollard addition to Mackay Regional Council.
