Innovative vehicle access control for National War Memorial Park


Company: Bully Boy

National War Memorial Park in Wellington was created as the Government’s key project to acknowledge the Centenary of the First World War. The park required a vehicle access solution that was dynamic in its configuration and easily operated, while also offering attractive aesthetics which were in-keeping with the memorial itself. This installation was to be completed in time for Anzac Day commemorations in 2015.

Bully Boy’s solution to project requirements: 48 removable timber bollards were installed as a vehicle barrier around the main parade ground. The structure was aligned with the architect’s initial design of a high strength crucifix central spine with four quadrant timbers of recycled totara. The bollards were assembled with hidden fasteners and concealed locking mechanisms to achieve clear faces on all timbers. Three Bully Boy 56/750 automatic bollards with “wireless” lighting modules were incorporated to allow access by authorised traffic through the parade ground. These automatic bollards are produced to an NZ/AUS patent where no drainage is needed and near-zero maintenance is required.
