Following a terror attack on Halloween that killed eight people, New York City is installing 1,500 new protective bollards around the five boroughs.
“We’re announcing today a $50 million investment in protective measures at key locations around the city,” Mayor Bill de Blasio said.
The bollards will be installed near pedestrian plazas and walkways. De Blasio said it will ensure that vehicles never enter places where pedestrians are.
“We are the safest big city in America and we need to make sure we have the safest streets and the safest sidewalks as well. And this major investment will help us to be even safer going forward,” de Blasio said.
