The Highway Agency issued a new policy, Interim Advice Note 60/05, recommending the use of concrete central barriers in order to reduce the risk of crossover incidents on central reservations of motorways, with high traffic levels. The policy stated that in most cases, when concrete barriers are struck they do not need to be repaired or need as much regular maintenance as steel barriers, therefore minimising the exposure and risk to road-workers.
