Steps have been taken at Wellington to provide a portable barrier for the port (left) propeller. Additional heavy immovable guidance signs are also being evaluated. One difficulty with any F27 type rope system is that the propeller is so much closer to he stairs on a Saab 340 that contact the rope could still mean contact with the propeller - particularly in high winds.
