Arilla Village

Arilla Village

Surrounded by parklands and positioned in South Morang, Arilla Village offers the complete retirement lifestyle package. Arilla Village is a vibrant community featuring a wide range of facilities and newly designed homes to suit every budget and lifestyle.

The Problem

After the completion of a safety and risk assessment audit, key areas regarding pedestrian safety were identified as requiring immediate attention to ensure the continued safety of its residents. Due to Arilla's proximity to Marymede Catholic College, it was discovered Arilla's private roads were being used by the public as a shortcut to the college sporting precinct and action needed to be taken to minimise or deter this traffic. Distributor TPS Group engaged Barrier Group's installation services to complete the installation on their behalf.

The Solution

As many of the roads within Arilla Village are shared between foot and vehicle traffic, reducing the speed limit to 15km/h was the first major alteration. Signs were installed in prominent areas to reflect this change. Traffic calming rubber humps were strategically positioned along the main arterial road to slow vehicle traffic while convex mirrors were placed on 90ยบ corners where visibility was limited. The chance of a pedal error accident near the communal lawn bowling green was reduced by installing Compliance Wheel Stops in parking spaces and below ground heavy duty bollards in pedestrian access points. Custom signs were erected at the entrance to alert the public that there was no through access to adjoining roads.

The Challenges

During installation a few residents raised concerns over increased noise that would be generated by cars driving over the round rubber speed humps. Due to the reduced speed limit of 15km/h and the shock absorbent properties of rubber, residents could be assured that there would be no increase in noise.
