The places where safety fences must be installed are given for normal transverse profiles, for median reserves with different widths, and for hard shoulders with different widths. Discontinuities and transitions in road safety devices are discussed as are some other kinds of crash barriers. Other subjects such as the quality of the berm, the conservation, the lay-out and visual guidance, and the curves are dealt with. /TRRL/
