What Can I Use Jersey Barrier Blocks For?
Jersey barriers are one of the most cost-effective and efficient ways to create a temporary or longer-term barrier. They are used for multiple applications, such as:
- Creating road safety barriers.
- Protecting highway workforces or construction teams.
- Restricting vehicular access.
- Securing open entrance points from unauthorised vehicles.
- Creating parking layouts and blocking off pedestrian areas.
- Safeguarding against ram-raiding and terrorist attacks.

How Do Jersey Barriers Defend Against Theft?
A barrier made from jersey blocks is a firm preventative of multiple types of criminal activity, as well as a safety asset.
Problock can erect barriers along any land, building site, perimeter or property access point. Given the size and weight of the blocks, these are immovable by anybody other than the specialist Problock installations team and prevent vehicular access.
Sturdy concrete barriers can also withstand high-speed impacts or collisions from larger vehicles. They are ideal as a traffic safety precaution for roadside safety or to prevent any premises from being vulnerable to trespass and theft.
What Does a Jersey Barrier Block Weigh?
Each block weighs 1,450 kilograms and is 2.5 metres long, and so a barrier made from interlocked jersey barriers is exceptionally robust and can withstand extreme pressure.
Who uses jersey barriers?
Concrete jersey barriers are a simple and yet highly effective solution, with the capacity to provide added safety and security for multiple applications. Some of the common places where you might expect to see jersey barriers include:
- Events management, with jersey barriers used to create temporary parking areas.
- Flood defences, using a concrete barrier to control flood vulnerabilities.
- Protection for workers alongside roadways.
- Hostile vehicle mitigation (HVM) – preventing vehicles from entering a high-risk site.
How Much Does it Cost to Hire a Jersey Barrier?
The cost of your concrete block hire depends on the length of hire, how many blocks you need, the location of your site, and the complexity of your required configuration.
