Midsumma Pride March is a signature celebration of pride and diversity to march for those who cannot. The 26th annual Pride March took place on the 23rd of May 2021 where 7000+ marchers took to Fitzroy Street in St Kilda Melbourne. Thousands of people lined the cafes and balconies along Fitzroy Street to show their support.
AML Risk Management was proudly involved in the event and supplied Archer 1200 Barriers to secure the venue location, which closed off roads in St Kilda around the Pride March route.
The Archer 1200 barriers were used as part of the vehicle mitigation plan to secure the site perimeters, deployed with quick release certified arrestor cables to allow access to emergency vehicles and the march floats. AML Risk Management staff deployed 99 Archer 1200 Barriers in under 45 minutes to secure the perimeters of the event and also reopened the roads at the conclusion of the event in the same time.
The Archer 1200 Barriers worked to protect the marchers, event staff and bystanders from errant and hostile vehicles to allow for a safe and successful event.
We would like to thank all parties who were involved in the event operations which contributed to the success of the event.
