Barrier Line Marking​

Main Roads has developed an excel spreadsheet that reads in a MX visibility report (example provided below) then calculates and displays where overtaking barrier line marking should be provided.

The start and end chainages are calculated based on the process defined in Australian Standards AS1742.2

An example of the drawing presentation based on the output can be found in drawing 200331-0033.

NOTE:  Barrier line marking should be verified on site in accordance with AS1742.2
