We are talking about the appearance of them, not their stability, if you think two B Profil crashbarriers like on the Struma are not strong enough to stop a car you are a poor dude. It´s better when crashbarriers are out of metal so that they can bend and you will not be stopped emidiatelly and if you really think some A profil crashbarriers like in Germany or in Serbia are stronger than the better looking B profil (maybe I confuse them and it´s the other way round, I mea the round ones looking better) you are a poor guy aswell.

But it is important that crashbarriers are shiny, if you think it is not important than I guess your Netherland roads look ugly, most German roads look ugly, too, except some new ones and many roads in Bayern, I am sure they are very durable, but just look ugly. Roads are like buildings or trains or whatever, you want a building to look good and have a glassfacade, many people like the shiny and prestigious buildings in Brussels, so why the **** shouldn´t this apply for roads, so a house should look good and clean but it doesn´t matter at all how a ******* road looks, I don´t understand you. So it gives you a good impression when your house has a great interior, your car has a great color and is clean, the building you work in looks nice so that the chance is higher that people think you have a good job but you don´t give a shit how a road looks and doesn´t like when a road has great visual features like shiny crashbarriers and very reflective markings. what applies for the one thing, applies for the other thing, too.

I like when crash barriers are shiny, but that's not necessary. However, if they are rusty, it doesn't look nice either. But I don't expect crash barriers to shine for long, so in the end I don't care much about them. Asphalt is also black in the beginning, but turns grey quite soon.

Shiny is nice, but they don't stay shiny for long. Rusty is not very good. Mostly they don't get rusty, but just stay dull grey. Looks ok IMO.

Take a look at Dutch crashbarriers. A lot of them are rusty.

you are right, that´s why it is very important that they install very shiny crashbarriers on new roads so they can last for example 1,5 years being shiny or add different zink which has a smoother surface and stays shiny for longer. Asphalt doesn´t neccesarily have to become grey, some 8 years old E-79 aspahlt is still dark grey and looks like new, I can show you pics.

This is what I meant with grey crashbarriers that are not necessarily shiny:

Here, you wouldn´t tell the asphalt is 8 years old, would you. Timon yes, the grey ones are standart but I prefer them shiny, it looks way different.

Verso: how come you post very often over here, but that your "online" button is always grey, and never green?
