Crash barrier design not fit for purpose

Reported in the Crash Barriers - Damaged / Missing category by Dave Gaster at 08:56, Tuesday 22 October 2019

Sent to Northamptonshire County Council 5 minutes later. ref: 1814313.

The barriers are quite narrow, the lines leading to them from either side do not enable cars or light vans to align properly. As a result it is very difficult for a driver to properly centre within the lead up from either direction. Furthermore, the width restriction are only needed due to gross mismanagement of KeirWSP staff, hence all damage & additional costs should pass through to KeirWSP insurers.
