[SA] New roadside motorcycle barriers being installed on Gorge Rd

Discussion in 'Politics, Laws, Government & Insurance' started by edgelett, Dec 15, 2009.

  1. press release from the Minister for road safety here:
    http://www.ministers.sa.gov.au/images/stories/mediareleasesDEC09/motorcycle barriers.pdf

    but have a look at the barriers on the website here:

    personally i think that if they work the way the site claims, they're amazing! Rather than crashing in to a metal post you will crash in to a mesh that slows your impact & reduces injury.

    If the trials go well I'd say it's a winner & i hope the replace the wire road barriers with these in other states.

  2. I just hope they dont get tested too soon.....

  3. That can only be a good thing, bravo!
