Context

A major issue that faces rail infrastructure is the threat of unauthorised vehicle incursion - both criminal and accidental - from the highway onto railway lines.

Network Rail specified Barkers' StronGuard™ RCS75 PAS68 crash-tested palisade fencing to help reduce these accidents around a busy road junction in Nottingham.

StronGuard™ RCS75 is designed and accredited to stop up to a 7.5 ton vehicle traveling at 30mph.

Work undertaken

After modifying the current basic design to meet Network Rail's operational requirements, Barkers worked closely with the contractor who was responsible for clearing vegetation, removal of existing fencing, traffic management, and overall site supervision.

A site survey was designed then StronGuard™ RCS75 was delivered in a timely manner, meeting the client's expectations. The installation took just 4 days which kept congestion at this busy road junction to a minimum. StronGuard™ palisade has the added bonus of increasing security protection for the client.

The actual project threw up several challenges for the design team as there were a number of restrictions on what could be connected to the existing infrastructure and the difficulty encountered with the lack of footprint available. However, by working with the client, the challenges were overcome by way of innovative design solutions.

“We are pleased with the aesthetic finish of the StronGuard™ RCS75 which looks like our standard fence whilst affording us the added benefit of the impact system.”
