Safe work access and egress points from the outside lanes in both motorway directions into the central work area is a safety concern which has been approached above and beyond normal work practice by the CKJV SMP delivery team, adding extra site safety to the already proven Asset VRS Varioguard and Zoneguard steel temporary barriers used extensively on this M6 – 18 mile section.
The narrow 700mm foot of the barrier enables a wider working area for construction staff, plant and vehicles operating behind the steel barrier. This additional work area width is of great value for improved road safety and traffic movement when bringing materials into and out of the site. Fully tested to BS EN1317 performance levels N1, N2 and H2 operators are reassured of proven safety performance of these traffic management barriers.
Likewise, Asset Vecu-Stop crash cushions used on the approach ends of the temporary site barriers are all fully tested to EN1317 performance class 110km/h and offer high visibility to barriered sectors.
