RAMSHIELD® Guardrail and MSKT Terminals were installed as part of East Gippsland Shire Council’s project to upgrade an important alternate access road into Lakes Entrance. Scriveners Road is increasingly being called upon during emergency situations as an alternative bypass for high two-way traffic volumes and large heavy vehicle traffic. Other works included widening a section of roadway, lengthening existing road culverts, gravel re-sheeting and sealing the entire 5.4km length.
The installation of RAMSHIELD® and MSKT Terminals provides compliance with MASH Test Level 3. MASH compliance for guardrail barriers and end terminals commenced 1 January 2020 throughout Victoria. The introduction of MASH follows changes to the vehicle fleet, researching of real-life impact conditions and updated criteria for evaluating barrier performance.
