Very sharp burrs on handrail will cut hands

Several weeks back a van crashed into this railing. For some reason, the railing was cut by emergency services. This has left a ver sharp edge and the risk of cutting hands. I appreciate that this junction is soon to be upgraded but the railing cannot be left in this state. A cheap solution would be to unbolt and remove the cut section, a task that would take just minutes to complete.

  • Plastic barrier taped over this damaged barrier.....ugly but still a temporary fix. Road junction redesign is planned this autumn.
