Choice of solutions

Pedestrian barriers are used in many urban landscapes to facilitate and prevent access, and direct foot traffic. When well-designed, these can either blend into the surrounds or act as a focal point for locals and visitors.

With this in mind, Urban Effects custom-made pedestrian barriers for Invercargill City Council to be installed in the South City Shopping Precinct. The crossing point barriers boast a contemporary, linear design and urban art like look. The modern barrier system directs pedestrians to the road and prevents access through the gardens for safety and preservation. The permanent fixtures are stylish while being robust and durable for the outdoors.
