All the time we see colorful or concrete barriers placed along the roads or near construction sites, for warning and preventing any accidents. These barriers are also called as Jersey Barriers. A jersey barrier is a protective modular concrete or plastic barrier purposely manufactured and deployed to prevent mishaps from happening. They are also used for traffic channelizing, protection of walls and pedestrian traffics and prevent access to prohibited areas like terrorism, crime and accident sites where investigation is going on and are considered to be an economical substitute to expensive barricades.
During short-term projects like celebrity appearances and Music concerts which involve constant moving from one place to another, there is no need or the budget of deploying concrete jersey barriers. In cases like these, Plastic Jersey highway barriers are used as they save time and money too because no huge vehicles like trucks or trailers needed to transport them from one place to another.
