In 2012/2013 Transport Infrastructure Ireland (TII) carried out an inventory gathering and condition assessment of Vehicle Restraint Systems (VRS) on the Local Authority-managed national road network. This exercise identified various locations where existing VRS were damaged, out of tolerance, or obsolete, and that interventions or upgrading works were required.

Deciding and detailing a compromised solution which achieves the best road safety benefits in such situations presents a huge challenge for all involved.
