PTH,
From one colonial to another:
I fully understood the meaning of the word "kerb" in this situation and it was fine. In the USA we might have spelled it ''curb''.
A "kerb" is a lip on the side of a road (or in this case, across the underrun of a runway).
"Curb" means to stop, reduce or desist in doing short landings!
