New sandstone safety barriers installed at The Quad

Stylish sandstone barriers that double as seats have replaced the temporary orange crash barriers at the popular Lismore Quad.

The orange barriers were installed as a temporary measure in October after two cars separately jumped the curb and drove across The Quad, Lismore City Council’s Manager of Major Recreation and Cultural Facilities Tony Duffy said.

Lismore News, New sandstone safety barriers installed at The Quad“The safety of our community comes first and we don’t want to run the risk of injury or worse, so the temporary barriers were installed, he said

The new sandstone barriers that now encircle the Quad, while leaving easy pedestrian access to the grass and Regional Art Gallery, were lowered into place last week. A boom gate has also been installed for approved vehicle access.

“The new sandstone blocks look terrific and are a great improvement from what was there,” Mr Duffy said.

“When the temporary ones were installed, a lot of the feedback we got from the community was that they wanted something that could also be used as street furniture.

“Not everyone wants to sit on the grass so it’s great that people now have that option.”
