Signposts to caution drivers:
Signposts play an important role in controlling traffic during construction of the road. For instance there is a huge rough patch of road being reconstructed, a signpost would tell them to take a diversion as the road is impassable. A signpost can also warn driver that a construction site is ahead and so drivers should tread with caution. These signposts are usually made in very attracting and bright colors so that its hard to miss them. Usually the color orange or yellow is used to play this role.
Control large collision damage using water filled barriers:
Water filled barriers placed on the roads or on highways can avoid large damage. Usually these barriers are placed on open edges of concrete that divide the road. This edge is an open concrete block that would devastate the car if its not seen due to a problem. These water filled barriers not only significantly weaken the impact but also avoid damage to life by cushioning the collision.
Proper diversion using concrete barriers:
Diversions are an inevitable part of road life. Usually the diversions do not have reinforced concrete barriers due to which cars enter the site of the construction by accident causing damage to driver and cars. The financial damage aside the damage to life can be really bad. These reinforced barriers are very big and can be seen from a distance if someone misses the signpost that is warning of a diversion ahead.
Traffic cones for cordoning off a small portion of the road:
Traffic cones are small but are very visible due to their striking colors so they are visible from a distance. These cones are used to cordone portions of roads for instance a school using cones to divide the road into a small pick up area.
