International counter-terrorism initiative happening in Melbourne

The Australian authorities are on high alert as the coming festive season is approaching, bringing with it a heightened terror risk. In response, Victoria Police is hosting an international counter-terrorism forum, the first one to be held outside the United States. ‘We know that responding to terrorism is not something a single organisation, a single government or a single country can manage in isolation, that’s why we’re all here, as partners, to jointly confront this threat,’ assistant commissioner Shane Patton said.

Melbourne gets permanent bollard solutions

(http://www.designerbollards.com.au/granite/vanguard-bollard-range/) Melbourne City Council has responded to the public backlash of the temporary concrete blocks dumped in locations around the CBD. The council will be removing the blocks and replacing them with permanent steel bollards and planter solutions. These are moves in the right direction and we believe the more aesthetic solutions will win over a large portion of public approval. With a large range of VBIED solutions available, we can see how stunning Melbourne can look if the right solutions were adopted. We   ...read more

Smarter Speed Humps

Smarter Speed Humps

Speed Humps are a very effective solution in slowing commuters to a safe driving speed. However, for all its benefits, there are some major downfalls to the humble speed hump. Speed humps force drivers to go well below the speed limit to safely travel over the bump, creating inefficiencies, as well as car using more petrol and making more noise to travel the same distance. Speed humps can also damage car suspensions and cause discomfort or injury to car occupants, particularly if they are elderly, infants or injured. This is where the future of speed humps provide  ...read more

Traffic and public transport were re-routed until the area was cleared and deemed safe ag  ...read more
