More about Traffic Barriers

Unlike traffic management barriers, traffic barriers are designed to sit on or very close to UK roads to keep road users informed and allow traffic to flow normally.

Available in bright, attention-grabbing designs, our selection of road work barriers will warn of hazards in the road long before the approach, guiding drivers along safe and reliable alternative routes.

Types of road work barriers

If warning about potential roadworks, common varieties of
road traffic barriers include:

Chapter 8 traffic barriers
Water-filled traffic separators
Traffic cones and bollards

Both Chapter 8 road work barriers and water-filled traffic separators are constructed from durable and long-lasting HDPE, designed to survive impact with vehicles and the effects of poor weather for years to come.

Meeting Chapter 8 Regulations

Chapter 8 Regulations, as set out by the Department for Transport, outline how to safely carry out signing, lighting, and guarding of the street and road works on all highways and roads across the UK.

An essential part of compliance is using protective barriers, including Chapter 8 traffic barriers and water-filled traffic separators as well as cones and traffic management bollards.

While the regulatory guidance is not legislation and therefore road work barriers aren’t necessarily a legal requirement, it is an example of good practice, and can reduce the likelihood of potential legal action should an accident occur.

Who is protected by Chapter 8 Regulations?

Predominantly, Chapter 8 Regulations protect anyone using
the roads. This includes:

The general public
Highways maintenance and the like
Emergency workers, including recovery vehicles and staff

Purchasing strong, weather-resistant road work barriers from us ensures your compliance with Chapter 8 Regulations and keeps motorists and essential workers safe from harm, allowing them to complete essential works and keep traffic flowing smoothly.

Are road traffic barriers weather resistant?

Potentially the most versatile plastic for outdoor use, HDPE has many qualities that make it ideal for outdoor use.

These resistances include:

Chemical- perfect for use during chemical spills
UV resistance- which limits fading and breakdown
Mildew and mould- limiting the damage that can come from excess wet weather
Frost- stopping damage from cold snaps
Heat- HDPE can be used in temperatures up to 120°C for short periods

These properties make HDPE road traffic barriers incredibly robust, providing customers with excellent value for money.
