Why barber poles are popping up in Brisbane

If you’re a Brisbane local, you may have noticed some new additions to your roads.

Blue and green barbers poles have been springing up across the city.

“What we’ve seen with the explosion of ride-sharing companies is that road real estate has been at a premium.

He says the green and white poles are specifically for school zones, while the blue and white poles are for regular ride-sharing drop-offs.
