Don't let your project hold up traffic - choose Plastic Chapter 8 Barriers

When road maintenance is being carried out or construction work is taking place near pedestrian access routes, it is essential that the flow of traffic is not interrupted and that people are kept safe at all times. It is now very common to see road maintenance activity as you commute to work or drive up and down the motorways, and with the UK Government’s Road Investment Strategy reform taking place from 2015 until 2020, we will no doubt see more and more of this. 

The Government will spend around £15 billion fulfilling a five year plan to improve major roads and highways across the UK including 1300 additional lane miles, safety repairs, plus noise reduction on motorways. During any road maintenance or construction project, staff must ensure that any hazards or restricted areas are shielded and clearly indicated to avoid harm. Plastic Barrier systems are a staple of any road maintenance project and here at First Fence, we offer a range of Plastic Chapter 8 Barriers for you to choose from. 

So what makes Plastic Chapter 8 Barriers so popular?

Made from highly durable plastic, these Barriers are lightweight but strong and are robust enough to endure constant movement and the cold weather. Complying with Chapter 8 regulations for traffic signs, Plastic Pedestrian Barriers are recognised for their bright, high visibility appearance and with their red and white reflective strip, they are always easy to spot.

Another benefit of Plastic Chapter 8 Barriers is that they can be stacked, which is great when you need to transport them from place to place. Although sometimes, barriers may only be required for a short period of time or you may not have the facilities to store them after use, which is why at First Fence, we offer the handy alternative of a Hire Service!
