Proliferation of railway stations leads to spike in Transit Retail

A major expansion of railway stations in both Sydney and Melbourne has resulted in a mushrooming of valuable new retail floor space.

In Sydney, major expansions at Wynyard, Central Station, Barrangaroo and the Northwest Metro Line are typical examples of this fairly recent phenomenon. (See article by Carolyn Cummins at

Similarly, with airports and hospitals, transit hubs are proving to be the new frontier for retailers with their captive market.

The Australian Trellis Door Company (ATDC)’s industry-leading crowd control barriers are the go-to product for securing retail space in these transit hubs whether for airports, railway stations or hospital retail storefronts.

ATDC has supplied its crowd control barriers to secure permanent and pop up retail at Central Station and Wynyard (See article at as well as securing thousands of square metres of retail space at both Sydney and Melbourne International and Domestic Airports. (See article at

ATDC’s crowd control barriers are safe and easy to operate, having been tested against the relevant OH+S legislation and also NATA tested against the Australian Standards for temporary Fencing and Hoarding, including dynamic impact testing and simulated climbing.

These crowd control barriers are trackless, portable and flexible. Since they are modular, they can span unlimited width apertures (at any angle) without the need for any removable mullions. Available in standard heights, they run on a series of heavy duty non-marking thermoplastic bottom castors and have numerous wall mounted and floor fixed locking options.
