M4 improves barriers

A section of the M4 between junctions 17 and 18 near Leigh Delamere is to have the central barrier replaced by the Highways Agency in a £3.9 million investment.
 
The scheme will see the steel barrier replaced with a concrete barrier in a move supported by the BMF. Work is due to start on Monday 12 January and be complete by the end of March. 
 
BMF Government Relations Officer Graeme Hay said: “It is not often enough that I can report good news on the subject of crash barriers, but I was delighted to receive this through the BMF connections with the Highways Agency. Any replacement of a steel crash fence with a concrete barrier is reassuring for riders and I welcome this project.”
