London’s evolving bollard-style streetscape security solution

During the last year, several major cities around the world have been the target of vehicle-borne attacks. One of them is London. After the 2017 Westminster attack, it has taken further steps to protect its urban façade against future vehicle-borne attacks. According to Professor Jon Coaffee, of the Resilient Cities Lab at the University of Warwick, ‘more public spaces and transport infrastructure have been protected by ad hoc concrete blocks or metal barriers that, in many cases, will evolve into bollard-style streetscape security solutions.’ While  ...read more
