Selection of Road Safety Barrier Systems


This document specifies public domain and proprietary longitudinal road safety barrier systems and
other crashworthy devices such as crash cushions and vehicle attenuators that are accepted for use on
roads managed by Ashghal Public Works Authority (PWA). Longitudinal safety barriers can be classified
into three types as follows:
(a) Rigid
(b) Semi-rigid
(c) Flexible
The selection, design, installation and maintenance of longitudinal road safety barriers must consider
the operation of the barrier as an entire system. This includes all additional components such as end
terminals, crash cushions, transitions and gates. All road safety barriers installed on the road network
must be installed and maintained by qualified personnel.
The manufacturer or supplier of a proprietary road safety barrier system shall provide all necessary
details for verification of crash performance, characteristics and limitations of the system and
requirements on the fabrication, installation, maintenance and refurbishment of the system.
All road safety barrier systems must be deemed to be in accordance with EN1317, NCHRP350 and/or
MASH and approved by the PWA. The primary criterion for the approval of a barrier system is that it
must have been successfully crash tested and the results evaluated in accordance with EN1317.
However, consideration will also be given to systems that have been successfully crash tested in
accordance with NCHRP350 or MASH.
In addition, consideration will be given to other factors including but not limited to the following:

In-service Performance:

In the case of a system with no demonstrable in-service history


an in-service trial may be required, at the manufacturer /
suppliers cost or as otherwise agreed with the PWA.

Availability of Spare Parts:

The manufacturer / supplier will need to demonstrate that


spare parts are available for maintenance / replacement within
an agreed timeframe.

The selection of road safety barrier system for a particular site is based on the performance of the
system under crash test conditions. The objective of the testing is to determine the manner in which the
barrier system is likely to perform during a vehicle crash.
The primary criteria to evaluate the safety performance of a barrier system include structural adequacy
(containment level), occupant risk (impact severity), deformation of the system (working width or
deflection) and the post impact vehicle response.

These criteria are summarised below:


(a) Containment Level
The tested barrier system must contain and redirect the vehicle in a safe manner. The vehicle
should not penetrate, under-ride or over-ride the installation. It is important to note the vehicle
types and test conditions for each containment level when selecting the type of barrier protection
required. EN1317 sets out criteria for normal containment (N1 and N2), higher containment (H1 to
H3) and very high containment (H4a and H4b). Refer to Appendices A and B. NCHRP350 and MASH
set out criteria for test levels 1 to 6, with TL6 providing the highest level of containment (refer to
Appendix B).
(b) Impact Severity
Detached elements, fragments, or other debris from the test article should not penetrate the
occupant compartment or present an undue hazard to other traffic. The impact severity level for
safety barriers shall be as low as practicable to reduce the risk to vehicle occupants. For systems
tested to EN1317, impact severity level A shall be preferred over level B, and levels A and B
preferred over level C (Appendix A). For systems tested to NCHRP350 or MASH, lower values for
Occupant Impact Velocity (OIV) and Occupant Ridedown Acceleration (ORA) are preferred.
(b) Working Width / Deflection
Controlled lateral deflection of a barrier system is generally acceptable. However, this deflection
and additional vehicle rotation over the barrier must be considered when selecting a barrier system
for a particular site. Consideration needs to be given to the amount of barrier deflection under test
conditions with roadside hazards being located beyond the specified working width or maximum
deflection zone.
(c) Post Impact Vehicle Response
After a collision, it is preferable that the vehicle's trajectory does not intrude into adjacent traffic
lanes. Evaluation of the safety performance of roadside hardware is based on actual crash testing.
Refer to Appendix A for a summary of EN1317 crash test criteria. Refer to Appendix B for a comparison
of EN1317, NCHRP350 and MASH crash test containment levels and test conditions.

New Products & Amendments


Previous version (Version 1): OM-PPQ-RSB-001 (14/04/2014)
This section will provide a summary of new products added to the list and details of any significant
amendments to the previous version:1. SLED (Sentry Longitudinal Energy Dissipater) Temporary Crash Cushion Added to section Crash
Cushions.
The SLED is a narrow, water-filled, non-redirecting, gating crash cushion which has been successfully
tested in accordance with NCHRP 350 Test Level 3 for use as an end treatment to steel and concrete
barriers under temporary conditions.
Note: - (1) The system is only to be used on projects for a duration of one month or less unless otherwise
approved by the Ashghal Traffic Diversion Plan (TDP) Approvals Office.
(2) Because the SLED is a non-redirecting, gating crash cushion, it should be applied in locations
that are not likely to be impacted at an angle on the side at any significant velocity;
(3) The approved product supplier (Refer section for details) remains responsible for ensuring
that Contractors have the necessary knowledge and skills to correctly use the product;
(4) The minimum acceptance configuration for use is the 4 module TL3 configuration unless
specifically approved as a departure by the Ashghal TDP Office;
(5) For full details of usage requirements for this product refer to Ashghal Acceptance Letter
dated 07-12-2014.
2. Imeva H2BL900 Permanent Safety Barrier- Added to section Permanent (Semi-Rigid Barriers).
The Imeva H2BL900 is a Semi-Rigid type Permanent Safety Barrier which complies with EN 1317-2
standard H2W5, ASI-A level.
Note: - Seek guidance from Roads O & M Department for approved installer details
3. SAFEROAD RRS Permanent Safety Barrier- Added to section Permanent (Semi-Rigid Barriers).
The Saferoad Road Restraint System is a Semi-Rigid type Permanent Safety Barrier which complies with
EN 1317-2 standard H4bW4, ASI-A level.
Note: - Seek guidance from Roads O & M Department for approved installer details
