Attendees at the upcoming South Australian local-government roads and works department conference will have the chance to see two new retractable bollards from Roadside Services and Solutions.

The Roadside Gas Lift Retractable Bollard has been designed to allow authorised vehicle access to areas and is making its Local Government Association of South Australia conference debut at the annual event being held in Renmark from August 14-16. The event is hosted by Renmark Paringa Council.

Roadside launched the product nationally in South Australia recently, at the AITPM National Traffic and Transport Conference 2019. Also being showcased is a low-cost, hydraulic controlled, stainless steel, fully-automated retractable bollard. It is designed to meet the needs of private or small business who would like an access-optional barrier system to protect its assets.

Features of this bollard include:

  • 304 grade stainless steel
  • Powder coated for aesthetics and presentation
  • Self-contained hydraulic system
  • Digital PLC control system that can be fully customised
  • Maintenance-friendly
  • Can be controlled remotely

Delegates and visitors to the upcoming LGA Roads and Works Conference 2019 can take a look at the new Roadside bollards at the Roadside marquee at Renmark’s Chaffey Theatre from August 14-16.

Roadside Services and Solutions managing director Jared Watkins says Roadside is pleased to be showcasing its retractable bollard products at the annual event. Jared Watkins says the team is happy to answer questions from roads and works professionals that might be interested in how they can use the bollards in transport and traffic management systems.

“The team at Roadside is proud to be rolling out another innovative bollard to South Australian transport specialists, local governments and works departments,” Jared Watkins says. “Roads and works team members are invited to stop past our stand and check out our new Gas Lift Retractable Bollard and see it in operation.

“Bollards are a vital tool for local government traffic management but they don’t always need to be fully automated."

Roadside’s gas-lift bollard forms part of the company’s bollard range, with crowd favourite, the Roadside Fully Automated Retractable Bollard, also to be on show at the conference.

Roadside South Australia and Northern Territory director Craig Woods says the local team is looking forward to demonstrating the company’s product range at the annual show at Chaffey Theatre.

“We will have our bestselling fully automated bollard at the stand along with the new gas lift option, so people can see them both in action,” Craig Woods says. “The gas-lift bollard is a good complementary product to the fully automated bollard councils have already rolled out across South Australia.

“Roadside’s gas lift bollard can be used in less trafficked areas, like walking malls or at the start to private roads, near loading docks or private car parks — any area you access with authorised vehicles.

“Our team is happy to field any questions people have on how it can work in a wider traffic and transport planning framework putting together a business case for the lower cost option.

“With new funds coming into budgets this financial year, now is a great time to be placing orders for our traffic management solutions that take the effort out of local roads management.”

Roadside will be running a business card raffle at the LGA conference, with one lucky winner able to pick up a prized bottle of Moët & Chandon Brut Impérial champagne.

To check out Roadside’s bollards, stop past its exhibit near the televisions at the breakfast barbecue and meal breaks area at Renmark’s Chaffey Theatre.
