The Zen of Amco's Revisited

This Amco barrier has taken a swipe.
It has done it's job well.

Beyond it is a steep bank, and a creek.
If a truck went over here it is doubtful if the driver would survive.

It is on a tight sweeping bend on the Hiwi's, on State Highway 4.

The marks would suggest a truck has hit it, the rail has deflected the tires and despite a bit of red paint and indicator glass, all has ended well.

We will have to repair this.

Straighten the rail, and realign and ram the posts. No big deal.

But somebody got a hell of a fright.
