FED:A new plan to tackle vehicle attacks: govt


Date: Sun 20 Aug 2017


Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull will announce a new national security strategy following the terrorist attack in Barcelona in which a vehicle was once again used to mow down innocent people in a crowded area.

Transport Minister Darren Chester said aside from maintaining constant vigilance there will be a greater use of permanent bollards to separate vehicles from pedestrians and more use of police and agencies around mass gatherings.

"It is a constant battle for us. It is a tragic reflection of our times that we need to be taking these sorts of measures," told ABC television on Sunday.

Mr Turnbull will unveil the counter-terrorism strategy document on Sunday.

The plan, called Australia's Strategy For Protecting Crowded Places From Terrorism, was given to Australian businesses and councils last week, and outlines ways to prevent vehicle attacks similar to those seen in Barcelona, Nice, and London.
