Sydney- Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull revealed Sunday projects to prevent terror attacks, especially those done with vehicles in crowded public places.
Turnbull said the government and the police will help owners of public places and designers in incorporating safety features into their projects to boost safety measures.
“The best mitigation are done at the design,” he told reports in Sydney.
ISIS claimed responsibility for the attacks in Cambrils and Barcelona, which killed 14 and injured more than a 100.
Turnbull said it can’t be 100 percent safe, however, “the most important thing is that, as you get new developments, new plans, that security measures are put in place at that time,” he added.
Steps include the installation of bollards along main streets, and at shopping centers and outside sporting grounds.
“The threat is constantly evolving, and so what we have to do is make sure that we too are constantly improving and updating the measures we have to keep Australians safe,” he added.
The strategy was initiated following initiated the attack in 2016 when a terrorist drove a truck into crowds in the French city of Nice killing 86 people.
In January, a man drove into pedestrians in the city of Melbourne, killing six.
