Tertu Case Study: North Horley Eastern Access Road, with Littlewoods Fencing

Partner: Littlewoods Fencing Ltd

Location: North Horley Eastern Access Road.

Live Dates: 26th April – 5th May 2021

Product: Tertu TimberRail

Project Background:

The new North Horley, Eastern Access Road is one of two ways to enter the Westvale Park new-build housing site and is part of a large regeneration project within the Northwest Horley area Up to 1,510 homes, a new neighbourhood centre and primary school and associated infrastructure and access roads linking the development to the A23 and A217.


Project designers wanted a vehicle restraint system that looked more natural in the surroundings and had more of an aesthetic appeal, while still retaining N2W2 classification, so decided on the Tertu TimberRail as opposed to a steel barrier.

Installer feedback:

Stuart Streeter, Lead Fencer and Supervisor for Littlewood Fencing Ltd:

"Tertu TimberRail systems are an ideal alternative when a VRS is required in scenic settings such as Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, national parks or to fit in with a new-build housing estate design.

On this occasion, Tertu TimberRail was used due to the product meeting the specifications required (N2W2), it’s ease of install, alongside being one of the more aesthetically pleasing timber VRS systems on the market.

Littlewood Fencing Ltd have a good working relationship with Highway Care as a company and as I do personally.

They are local to me should we need additional materials, and someone is always on hand for technical advice and assistance.

The T32 Tertu TimberRail system has been the easiest to install so far. You build it as a conventional steel VRS and clad it afterwards. This means that the components are lighter than other systems that we have used time is saved not struggling with heavier materials. Highway Care are always a pleasure to work alongside.
