There are specific guidelines for the height and weight of parklet barriers, and there is a higher level of requirement for parklets on arterial roads, as governed by the Department of Transport. The existing parklets in Moorabool have weighted barriers, and the outer-facing corners have large concrete safety bollards concealed within the structure.
Historically Moorabool has not had a program in place and the program needed to be created, inclusive of traffic management assessments, and event permits, ahead of any installations occurring. COVID-19 and the provision of State Government funding has enabled the creation of the pop up parklet trial in Moorabool Shire with funding to be utilised by 30 June 2021.
