High Tension Cable Barriers
The TMB commenced the installation of High Tension Cable Barriers along the Solomon Hochoy Highway (from Caroni to Golconda except
the stretch between Chaguanas and Chase Village) in 2011. Should a driver encounter difficulty on the road, this infrastructure prevents the vehicle from crossing the centre median, into the path of an oncoming vehicle, reducing the chances of fatalities.
