Recent Developments in Portable Longitudinal Barriers for Work Zones

Over the last half-decade Australia and New Zealand have undergone significant changes in the understanding, use and availability of tested work zone barriers. Existing work zone barrier systems, which have been the mainstay of the market such as plastic water-filled devices and nonproprietary concrete barriers, have begun to be replaced by proprietary systems. This brief paper discusses some of these systems and the important factors to consider when choosing a work zone barrier.
