How the Metro Tunnel project is using Crowd Control Barriers in Melbourne
Fortress Fencing Crowd Control barriers aren’t just for crowd control. There are a range of ways they are being used across the many stages of the Melbourne Metro Tunnel project.
From creating walkways, to fencing off piles of rubble, to surrounding cranes and other large plant, the teams working on the Melbourne Metro Tunnel have found many ways to use these crowd control barriers in Melbourne and surrounds, as they work on this massive metro public transport project.

Low intrusion feet also reduce the chance of pedestrian trips & falls, and they come with pre-drilled holes for bolt-down applications. Fortress Fencing’s crowd control barrier is fully welded, hard wearing, lightweight and easy to install.
