Another week, another HGV stopped… and no need to fix!
Lives were saved on the M6 between Junctions 6 and 7 recently when an HGV was, again, prevented from causing a major crossover incident by the BBS Concrete Barrier stopping the vehicle in the central reservation. Considering the severity of the impact, the vehicle suffered only minimal damage and the driver walked away with minor injuries. Crucially, no other vehicles were involved especially from the oncoming traffic in the other direction.
Despite absorbing an impact far beyond its design, the barrier was inspected for damage and it was agreed that no maintenance was required. It is a great example of whole life cost benefits through reduced maintenance costs and inconvenient traffic congestion during repair work.
The concrete barrier was recognised as a BBS Standard CB which is fully certified to EN 1317 and provides H2 Containment level with an ASI-B rating. For further details about this barrier or any other product, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
