4 pagesDate: March 3, 2020


This paper highlights on the need for cost effective road safety investments using 'rolling barrier' systems which can redirect the deviated automobiles onto the right path and also prevent the overturning of vehicles. The Road accidents are an outcome of the interplay of various factors, some of which are lengthof road networks, vehicle population, in case of our paper the topography of ghats and curvature of turns also plays a part along with human population adherence/enforcement of road safety regulations etc. This study aims to evaluate the effectiveness of the Rolling Barrier and to understand the Rolling Barrier‟s characteristics of crash cushioning. The Rolling Barrier can be effectively used in curved roads sections as seen in various test done on performance of Rolling Barriers.

Keyphrases: Barriers, Ghat Roads, Hairbend turns, Rolling Barriers, Shock absorbent Barriers.
