A timber lorry struck a set of goalposts set up to warn hauliers of an overhead power line crossing point. The impact broke the top bar and brought down one of the support bars.
The incident occurred early in the afternoon. The damaged goalposts were not reported until midday the following day. Two other timber lorries had accessed and egressed the forest complex in this period, unaware that the warning goalposts and signage were no longer in place.
Overhead power line goalposts and warning signage are set up to act as a hi-visibility warning that you are about to cross under high voltage power lines and that there is a height limit in place.
They are installed for the safety of all our road users, but especially for those at most risk - our hauliers and heavy plant transporters.
