The much publicized grand opening for Pitt Street Mall in November 2010 featured bollards from Leda. Sydney City Council through Westfield Construction was responsible for the project.
The bollards installed is the popular Slimline stainless steel range with the addition of matching retractable bollards. Sydney City Councils official bronze logo is in the top of all bollards which adds aesthetically to the high profile location for the City of Sydney. Consideration was also given to security with the bollards unobtrusively providing an increased level of security.
Two retractable bollards are located at each end of Pitt Street Mall which is an official road. While pedestrian access dominates the space during the day, many businesses need to have access for deliveries out of normal hours. Sydney City Council controls access to the mall with their access control systems plugging straight into the bollards control board. The control equipment had unique requirements for this site due to the limited space in the mall.
Visitors will enjoy the open space the mall provides and Leda had to design an automated bollard control panel small enough to fit in a seat. Leda was also selected by Westfield Construction on other parts of the development including the ram raid bollards. Through our security partner AVS Elli, Leda also supplied and installed several boom gates controlling the parking and loading bay area’s on the site.
