When south-west Sydney’s Liverpool City Council conducted a $5.5 million upgrade of Browns Farm Reserve in Hoxton Park, they chose recycled plastic 125 mm x 125 mm bollards to clearly distinguish the road from landscaped areas, and tell drivers where not to park. The upgrade included a multi-purpose sports field with flood lighting and irrigation, a half size basketball court, a practice cricket pitch, two children’s playgrounds, cycle and pedestrian paths, sealed car parking and a sports amenity building.
Browns Farm Reserve is now a great local and city asset. The part played by Replas is modest yet functional, traffic controls that are highly visible to visitors arriving at the oval and surrounding amenities. It’s a nod to sustainability too, with these long-life bollards made from plastic waste otherwise destined for the landfill.
