Abstract: India is a developing country. The rise in traffic swiftly day by day. The Government is looking for the new technologies in order to reduce the accidents on the roads and improve the safety of the road user. In 501423 road accidents 146133 people lost their lives in 2015 and in 2016 480652 accidents having 150785 deaths. In 2017 road crash fatalities increases by 3% in last 2 years.Rolling barrier also called as longitudinal barrier has pipes covered with urethane rings. A study is carried out to explain its need in India for using Rolling Barrier which will minimize the accident rate. The guardrail deflects and stop the vehicle. Speeds affects its performance.The barrier deflects the vehicle and stops it from crossing the barrier. The rolling barrier being very effective and efficient has reduced flat road accidents, raps, enter parking garages, etc. and also used in mountainous terrain. The product (rolling barrier system) developed by Korean company is very expensive so to overcome the price of barrier system we are replacing w-beam guard rail by steel pipe guard rail which has low cost and equal strength. Also, we decided to replace the LED lights used by Korean company with radium paper which will do the same purpose but at a very low cost.
