It's been revealed local Police will employ "hostile vehicle mitigation" strategies at a number of ANZAC Day Dawn Services across the Central Coast next week, in an attempt to thwart any potential terror threats.

It comes with recent attacks around the world where trucks and other vehicles have been used to plow into large crowds.

Newscorp reports, Brisbane Water Police will set up physical barriers as opposed to the standard yellow "Road Closed" signs at services including Terrigal and Ettalong.

It's believed police were initially looking at using garbage trucks or buses to place across roads leading into commemorations, or where marches are taking place.

While there has been no specific intelligence to suggest a threat, Police say the reality means they're implementing safeguards where crowds are expected to gather.
