Rosehill Rail reports that its conical anti-trespass panels made of recycled tire rubber have been deployed in Melbourne, Australia to help reduce the number of unauthorized people accessing tracks and other prohibited areas.

Trespassing on the 1000 km+ of railroad track which makes up Melbourne’s rail network causes more than 83 days of train delays each year and affects more than 25,000 services. To improve the passenger experience, Metro Trains Melbourne are trialing rubber anti-trespass panels at five stations across the city as part of their holistic anti-trespassing strategy.

Metro’s dedicated Network Security & Surveillance team will combine anti-trespass panels with state-of-the-art surveillance equipment, including drones, thermal imaging technology, and more than 9000 CCTV cameras, in an effort to disrupt trespassing and other illegal activity.
