PAS 68 Counter Terror planters for Middlesbrough Council

 

Townscape has successfully tendered to Middlesbrough Council for the supply of PAS 68 Counter Terror planters.

Thirty-two Toledo PAS 68 Planters and one hundred and six PAS 68 bollards have been supplied to create strong and robust hostile vehicle mitigation around the Town Hall and Central Square area of the city.

The new line of defence is not in response to any specific threat. Centre Square is one of the region’s biggest open civic spaces and the new security measure mirrors those seen in town and city centres across the country in recent years following attacks on domestic soil and abroad.

Cllr Dennis McCabe, the executive member for environment, said Centre Square played host to many public events attracting large audiences. He added: “In common with public spaces up and down the country, security arrangements remain under constant review in the wake of high-profile incidents both at home and abroad. “The CT planters will ensure that unwanted vehicles are unable to enter Centre Square, to protect those attending events or simply enjoying a stroll in the open air.”

The hardwearing steel, timber, and concrete planters were chosen for their high quality and durable finish.
