Use of wire rope barriers to be terminated in Northern …


A big day for road safety in Northern Ireland, as the Motorcycle Action Group NI (MAG) confirm that the use of wire rope barriers is to be terminated – following a meeting with the Department for Infrastructure. 

This is a hugely positive outcome for riders in Northern Ireland, but also has the potential to have a knock-on effect for policy makers in the rest of the UK. It was back in July 2020 that we reported that wire rope barriers were recognised as a hazard to bikers, so it’s taken a bit of time for something to change.

Change talks have appeared to run on for the entirety of the year, January 2021 saw a change to regulations which govern central reservation crash barrier requirements, where central reservations were required to install rigid barriers with a service life circa 50 years.
