Safety and cost-effectiveness evaluation of a 135 km median High Tension Cable Barrier system on a rural high speed divided highway in Alberta, Canada

Description

This study is to evaluate the safety and operational performance of the HTCB system on parts of Highway 2 between Edmonton and Calgary and to compile ‘lessons learned’ and recommendations for future projects. A before and after study of collision data for a total of 10 years (2005-2009 and 2011-2015) was conducted to review and analyze the performance of HTCB in terms of collision rate, collision severity, societal costs, and location of HTCB within the median.
