Tired – But Still Going Strong


This is a Newgate ‘Heavy Duty’ Electric Rising Arm Traffic Barrier – ‘’Bless it’’.

It’s looking rather tired and in need of some love, but trust me, despite its weathered appearance, it will keep going, long after you and me have expired.

The ‘H.D’ Barrier was introduced to the market in the Mid ‘1980’s’ & is a popular seller for the most arduous of sites, such as docks, harbours, railways, bridges etc.

Its ‘power’ comes from a tried and tested (now over 30 years) motor and gearbox drive train, rather than a typical hydraulic set up.

But above all, it’s British designed & built.
