Presentation Overview:

With the recent changes in the guardrail crash test standard, there is some changes to be aware of in both the design and construction of guardrail. The manual for assessing safety hardware (MASH) has replaced NCHRP350. Austroads Guide to Road Design (Part 6) was updated in recent years and discusses some new terminologies such as NRRIT. The latest TMR Supplement to this guide is currently in the process of being finalised, but does not yet accept the latest Austroads, so there is some differences between what local Government or Private industry will accept compared with State Government.

Ingal is a major provider in the road safety barrier industry and has offered their time to present during this meeting. Hugh Fitzgerald has significant experience in the design, supply and construction of road safety barrier systems. Hugh will discuss Ingal, what they offer the industry and things to be aware of when working in this space.
