In India, the transportation system is expanded rapidly. In India, the Government and Ministry of Road Transport and Highway is looking for the latest techniques for the safety of the roads and to reduce the accidents. Rolling Barriers consists of continuous pipe with urethane rings invented by the Korean company. The study of Rolling Barriers are carried out to evaluate the effectiveness of RB (Rolling Barrier) and to understand the characteristics of crash cushioning and to evaluate the required strength of barriers. In 2019,4.5 lakhs accidents are recorded in India, leading 1.5 lakhs deaths. The Rolling Barriers are very useful to reduce the accidents in future. These barriers are used in curved roads, hilly areas, on expressways etc. The total study of Rolling Barriers Systems are elaborated in this project.
