Highways Agency


The Highways Agency said this week that it is too early to speculate on performance of crash barriers on the A23, following a crash on Sunday in which eight people died. The Agency confirmed that barriers would be inspected as routine following an accident. A car is believed to have crossed the central reservation north of Brighton leading to a multiple pile up on both carriageways.

The Agency said that crash barriers are only usually breached in exceptional circumstances.
