Eaton Mall Security Upgrades Media Response

Questions and responses

Thanks for the media release on Eaton Mall security upgrade.

I just wanted to check when the council decided to go ahead with this measure.

I assume the process had been well in train before the hostile vehicle attack in Flinders St last month?

Council had begun the process of applying for funding for the bollards in September 2017. This is a proactive measure to ensure our community remains safe and continues to enjoy the vibrant atmosphere of Eaton Mall.

Also, do you have any details on security measures apart from the bollards?

As well as existing community safety measures like street lighting, some individual traders have installed  their own CCTV systems.
