Leeds installs ‘biker friendly’ crash barrier

16.34 | 3 July 2009 |

Leeds City Council has become one of the first authorities in the UK to fit the ‘Bikeguard’ barrier system to standard crash barrier.

BikeGuard is installed at a number of locations throughout the UK where accidents involving motorcyclists had resulted in death or serious injury, including along the A54 near Buxton in Derbyshire.

The system works by preventing a dismounted rider from coming into contact with the upright supporting pillars of conventional crash barriers. In Leeds, it has been fitted pro-actively to a section of national speed limit slip road where there is a tight bend.
