Barrier ‘obstructions’ too close to roads

LETTER TO THE EDITOR:

I WOULD like to comment on an article headed ‘Section of barrier roll out almost complete’.

The ‘safety’ barrier was the cause of a February incident.

Also it failed to keep the truck from flipping on to the wrong side of road.

It’s VicRoads propaganda that these barriers save lives.

What about motorcyclists?

There is no run-off room if something goes wrong.

Look at the grand prix riders surviving horrifically fast (300kmh) accidents unhurt because they don’t hit anything.

VicRoads should be shamed for placing obstructions so close to the road.
