Stunning Stanchions at Blackburn Station
by: Australian Bollards on
NJM Group has a long-standing history with developing Melbourne’s rail network dating back to the construction of the city loop in 1971.
We have done work at Bentleigh, Cardinia, Lynbrook, Nunawading, Springvale and Laverton North train stations and we continue to make stations safer, more efficient, and more beautiful with the latest project being at Blackburn station.
The works comes as part of the Level Crossing Removal Project which is removing 50 of the most dangerous and congested level crossings around Victoria.
Australian Handrails installed and manufactured handrails, stanchions and bollards at the station located in Melbourne’s East.
The stanchions have been designed specifically for Melbourne’s public transport systems as many Melbournians would recognised the sleek curved satin finished stainless steel edge of the stanchions.
The stanchions provide sturdy support for the parallel running wires and handrailing.
In this setting, the safety railing separates pedestrian traffic from the road but it can be used in many scenarios, such as tram stops or lane separation.
Heavy duty removable bollards were also installed to increase safety and create access control measures in the area.
The solution provides a barrier between the road and the foot path while allowing easy foot traffic movement around it which is important during peak times at the train station.
With many more projects being undertaken in the future with the Level Crossing Removal initiative, NJM Group hopes to provide great support across many projects to ensure the best outcomes for Victorians.
