Hostile Vehicle Mitigation – What does it mean?

In June last year the Melbourne Cricket Ground sought expressions of interest in expanding its Protective Security Solutions at the MCG with a hostile vehicle solution.

Here is the report from SEN (Security Electronics and Networks) that sets out the facility’s requirements. The tenders closed in July 2017, but with no real tangible decision made for this year’s cricket season.

MELBOURNE Cricket Ground (MCG) is seeking expressions of interest for the expansion of the MCG Protective Security Solution at the MCG with a hostile vehicle mitigation solution.


The MCC is seeking providers who have a validated track record in the design and installation of hostile vehicle mitigation solutions at similar sporting venues, or at other locations where direct comparisons can be made with the requirements of the MCC.

The MCG is Australia’s most attended sports and entertainment stadium, accommodating major events such as international cricket, Australian Rules football, soccer, rugby and concerts, as well as hosting a large number of major functions in the surrounding purpose-built facilities.

The MCG is on Crown Land in Yarra Park, Jolimont and is held on behalf of the people of Victoria by the MCG Trust. Day to day management and control of the stadium is delegated by the Trust to the Melbourne Cricket Club (the Club), which holds a long-term lease of the MCG.
