Crash barriers restricting visibility

Reported via desktop in the Structures (eg bridges, fencing, noise barriers) category anonymously at 11:48, Tue 24 November 2020

Sent to Highways England less than a minute later

The crash barriers are too high, so they are severely restricting visibility when joining this road which carries a very high volume of fast moving traffic. The visibility splays are not sufficient to allow safe access and it will not be long before there is a serious accident. Do you only take action after fatalities ?
