Mobile Traffic Management

Mobile Traffic Management

"Conducting moving works within a fully signed and coned-off area requires long lengths to be prepared in advance. This generates complaints from the travelling public, because they may see little evidence of work being done" 
Type C Works Chapter 8

 In response to the growing demand from both road users and road management departments for a reduction in avoidable static lane closures Highway Care provides complete or partial mobile traffic management systems fully approved in accordance with Highways Agency codes and Chapter 8 (July 2006) of the Traffic Signing Manual.

Highway Care’s mobile traffic management systems offer comprehensive flexibility. Various combinations of vehicles and signs covering work in all kinds of motorway and truck road situations are available, each conforming to the relevant regulations. This can vary from single vehicle convoy for a motorway rolling lane closure. Block vehicles are fitted with lorry mounted crash cushions, automatic impact brake systems and the latest safety features conforming to UK performance specifications. All operatives are fully trained and co-ordinated via in-vehicle VHF communications. Qualified supervisory staff manage all operations in a highly disciplined manner.

Many maintenance, survey and road servicing tasks formerly undertaken only through static closures can now be carried out safely and efficiently using mobile traffic management.
