Asset’s Varioguard vehicle restraint system is an important traffic management safety product adopted by Costain and regularly used on highway contracts as part of their supply chain agreement.
Junction 34 on the M6 Lancaster is undergoing extensive alteration with two motorway slip roads on each North and South bound sections being replaced with two new wider routes as part of the Heysham to M6 link project. Part of a much bigger Lancaster re-generation plan, the old slip roads first had to be removed whilst still allowing motorway access during the construction of the new routes alongside.
Varioguard is the leading highway safety barrier system on the UK market.
Varioguard is fully tested to BS EN 1317 performance levels N1, N2 and H2. Different working width classes are available, dependent on anchorage configurations.
When used as a temporary safety barrier Varioguard is usually anchored at each end with four 500 mm long anchor pins into pre-drilled holes.
