Good Design: Road Barriers

Good design can be applied to all aspects of life - even temporary road barriers.
This design has interlocking units with hand holds and can be stacked.

This barrier has a high visibility orange colour by day and reflector strips that can be seen at night. Additional warnings can be threaded through the top loops.

This is a more substantial barrier, with an interlocking connection and compact, manageable unit size.

Through a hole in the top, covered with a rubber flap, the barrier can be filled with water (or sand?) to give it more weight insitu.
William Morris and his cronies would have been interested in these road barriers even though they are not hand made. They were all about well functioning design  in all aspects of one's life.
