Padstow Commuter Car Park Barrier Project

Commuters now have a modern and secure multistorey car park in Padstow in a project hailed as an example of local and state governments working together for the benefit of the community. The car park has been delivered as part of the NSW State Government’s Transport Access Program and provides 205 spaces over 4 levels.

The RHINO-STOP® car park safety barrier system was the preferred guardrail option providing compliance to the loading requirements of AS/NZS 1170.1 and fall protection for pedestrians.
