The original proposals for This Highways Agency scheme, worth £150 million, were first proposed back in 1983. Residents and motorists alike are delighted that works have completed and this loathed stretch of road which was renown for long delays and congestion is now widened along a seven mile stretch between M1 Junction 24 and the A52 Nottingham Ring Road. The A453 has also been renamed Remembrance Way in honour of the 453 members of the armed forces who dies in Afghanistan.
Helping to create the all important safety barrier between this very busy road and the many residents of Clifton, Barton Green and Silverdale who will use the pedestrian walkways and crossing points is Optirail™ high visibility pedestrian guardrail supplied by Alpha Rail. In total, 500 linear metres of pedestrian guardrail was installed at the Crusader Island location and along the walkways adjacent to Remembrance Way as it passes through Clifton alongside the Nottingham University Campus.
The Optirail™ pedestrian guardrail system, which is only available from Alpha Rail, is considered the ultimate in high visibility guardrail due to the staggered arrangement of its infill bars. Alpha Rail offers a range of pedestrian guardrail solutions in a range of designs and colour options. We can also assist with on-site surveys. We have specialist teams who use industry leading measuring equipment. We will work out the exact rake and curvatures of the guardrail required, as well as tailor the stagger of the solid infill bars to ensure optimum visibility for both drivers and pedestrians, without compromising on safety.
