SMART signing, lighting and guarding

From time to time it is necessary to put temporary traffic management measures in place to allow traffic to flow while road works are safely carried out.

Compliant signing, lighting and guarding must be in place throughout the road works which is planned out before the work begins. However it is estimated that around £2.5m a year is spent, across all utilities in the UK, overcoming complex site challenges, resulting from errors in initial design.
