Highway Safety Innovation Award

Transport & Logistics, Transport, EMEA, Service Provider News
Kier Highways has been recognised with a Safety Innovation Award at the Road Surface Treatments Association (RSTA) annual conference, after introducing a new conveyor floor lorry for dressing road surfaces.

 

Developed in collaboration with RJ Holbrook and Fruehauf, the new vehicle replaces the requirement for tipper trucks that have historically been used to reload Phoenix chipping machines in aggregate dispensing operations.

 

Tipper trucks present a number of risks to highways teams, including those associated with cable strikes. Additionally, any requirement to leave an area to refill spreading machines slows work progress - with the company estimating efficiency gains of up to 25 per cent from the new vehicle in areas with a high density of overhead obstructions.

 

Andy Mayos, general manager for Kier Surface Treatments business, described the award as "a great achievement for the team" and an "excellent example of collaboration between Kier and its supply chain to overcome a significant risk".

 

Paddy Kirwan, service director for Kier Surface Treatments business, added:

"The RSTA award is excellent recognition for the STB team who are constantly exploring new ideas to eliminate safety hazards whilst improving the customer experience and increasing productivity."
