Save thousands on purchase price, installation and maintenance - even on small jobs.
Don't waste time, money and resources on expensive Retractable Bollards. MRWA Traffic Bollards are a cheaper, more sustainable Approved alternative to retractable bollards adjacent to roads where access is prohibited for general traffic but allowed for certain traffic, such as heavy vehicle or emergency vehicle U-turn facilities. MRWA maintenance teams have tools.
Sockets can be installed by simply positioning upright when when pouring concrete footings, (or retrofitted) creating a perfect finish that remains in pristine condition for the entire lifespan of a development
Instead of spending weeks of digging and traffic management, you can install the bollards for an entire development in a single day
Smart Bollards are secured using friction, remaining perfectly aligned, safe and secure year after year.
Even if totally flattened, foundations remain in tact and bollards can be quickly and efficiently removed using ergonomically designed tools (from a standing position, facing oncoming traffic) for wide loads, maintenance or upgrades, without disturbance.
60 mm diameter removable bollards (as per MRWA standard drawing 200831-0014) are for use adjacent to high speed roads where access is required for emergency vehicles or over-sized vehicles but you want to prevent access to the general public.
An example of this is the oversize vehicle turnaround bay on Roe Hwy just north of Great Eastern Hwy, the bollards prevent members of the general public from performing an illegal U-turn but allow oversized vehicles to travel from Roe Hwy northbound to Great Eastern Hwy eastbound without going under the bridge.
The support vehicles for the oversized load will remove and replace the bollards when necessary. They must be 60 mm diameter with a 2.9 mm wall thickness (as per the standard drawing) considered frangible for speeds of 80 km/h and greater.
The slipways and median strips on South West Highway all have Smart MRWA Traffic Bollards installed with no damage to footings since 2000 when the first bollards were installed. A shown here, sockets can be installed when pouring footings or retro-fitted (suggest you take the time to colour match surrounding foundations as your handiwork willbe on show for decades).
