Road Worker Safety Showcase

As part of Highways SIB’s Road Worker Safety Showcase, visitors can witness how the ingenious design of the new WJ Group’s Guardian system allows the complete road stud installation process to take place, whilst protecting operatives within an integrated safety cell of an 18-ton truck. The demonstration will feature WJ’s new Allux prismatic road stud but the concept can be used for installation of all types of road studs.

Next in the lineup, visitors can jump into Highway Care’s Barrier Transfer Machine (BTM) and experience for themselves how quick it is to move a positive barrier from one lane to another with the QuickChange Moveable Barrier (QMB). Those test driving the machine will be scored and the winner will receive a pair of Hospitality tickets to the 2017 Mini Challenge races. Sponsored by Highway Care, Mini Challenge Champion Charlie Butler Henderson will also be showing off his driving skills by taking a spin on the QMB.

As part of the mock road worker site, Highway Care will also feature their portable BarrierGuard 800 as a secure steel barrier in addition to their latest highways innovation, the SOSEC Mobile Highways Access Gate – the first solar powered barrier access gate.

As an apt finish to the Road Worker Safety Showcase, visitors will also be treated to an insightful Road Worker Speed Awareness experience highlighting the vulnerability of road workers and the need to drive at mandatory speed limits through roadworks.
