At Traffic Engineering Australia, we provide custom safety barrier design systems for a variety of applications and across projects of all scope and scale.
Road safety barrier systems must be designed and installed in accordance with Australian Standard AS/NZS 3845 and the guidelines laid out by the relevant state or national road authorities.
Our team of highly qualified traffic engineers can work with your plans to determine the safest and most cost-effective barrier design solutions that meets all applicable standards and regulations.
We specialise in a range of custom engineered barrier design applications including:
- Work zone and traffic control
- Industrial and warehouse barriers
- Traffic redirection barriers
- Construction site barriers
- Pole protectors
- Bridge barriers
- Emergency gate access
- Crash cushions
- Car park barriers
- Temporary barriers
- Noise walls – we don’t have enough experience, remove this one.
- Pedestrian and boundary fencing
Road Barrier Design
When it comes to road safety, barriers are used to stop out-of-control vehicles from leaving the road and hitting roadside hazards or crossing into on-coming traffic. Barriers are designed to redirect vehicles and mitigate the severity of the collision.
Proper barrier designensures that the impact with the barrier is less severe than a collision with whatever the barrier is shielding. It will also ensure proper clearance on the other side of the barrier, particularly for flexible and semi-rigid barriers.
Ultimately, barriers are a necessary last resort in the design process. Where possible, it’s always desirable to remove a hazard or improve the layout design to remove the risk, rather than design a barrier system.
With more than 15 years’ experience in traffic management, we deliver practical solutions for traffic planning and safety barrier systems. We have extensive experience delivering expert barrier design solutions across projects of all scale and scope.
