Unsafe barriers still on Wellington roads despite warning

From Morning Report, 8:21 am on 13 March 2019

Six kilometres of dangerous median barriers remain on Wellington roads despite a report three years ago calling for them to be replaced. The Transport Agency report identified concrete barriers installed on various parts of State Highway One and Two that can move if hit by a vehicle. It says in one crash the barrier was pushed into oncoming traffic and in another it swung out on to a train track. Emma Hatton reports.
