The traffic barrier comprises an elongate length of rail 16a-d supported by posts 24a-d,26a-b set into the ground beneath with the rail having a terminating end that is set into an area of level ground adjacent the roadside. A post 26b is preferably attached to the terminating end, the post being set into the ground below the terminating end. Preferably a second post 26a is also set into the ground below the rail at a point where at least some of the rail is still beneath the surface of the ground. The rail preferably rises at an acute angle of less than 10 degrees. The posts are preferably attached to the rail so that the highest point of the rail is below the highest part of the rail at the attachment point, with the post preferably being directly attached to the rail. The rail supported in its section that is entirely above ground is preferably supported by at least three posts with varied spacing between them. Also claimed is a method of installing a roadside barrier.
