HC Deb 24 May 1990 vol 173 c288W
Mr. Fearn

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what consideration has been given to the provision of alternative methods, other than central crash barriers, of preventing crossover accidents on dual carriageways.

Mr. Atkins

Consideration has been given to a number of alternatives including earth bunds, dense shrubbery and "arrester strips". All were assessed to be less safe, less practicable or otherwise less effective than safety fences and barriers.
