Just last year, a woman had lost her life after falling off the cliff into Birguma Valley near Victoria Lines.

The area is also often frequented by people enjoying their morning walk or run and is known for its panoramic view.

The newly installed safety barriers came about following pressure from residents and the local council.

Apart from the barriers mainly being installed for safety reasons, the use of timber as a material also makes them fit into the surrounding environment well and was identified as the best option in this case.

What do you think of the new barriers?
