About cable barriers

Cable barriers consist of a number, typically three or four, of high tension steel ropes whoch are anchored to the  ground at each end and kept in position by posts at about a few metres spacing. 

Cable barriers possesses unique features as it catches vehicles and allow it "hang" in the cables similar to a hammock whilst the  posts bend as they are hit and the cables are released from the posts. This causes low levels of accelerations and crash violence to the occupants of the vehicle. The vehicle will typically not be thrown back out to the carriadgeway as is often the case in collisions with other road barrier technologies.
