A convoy system can be incorporated into an existing traffic management system such as traffic light systems, lane closures and road closures to safely escort traffic through a works area when a safety zone cannot be feasibly installed or maintained.
By reducing the speed limit to 10mph and escorting traffic through the works with a convoy vehicle the onsite activities can progress safely.
We offer various convoy systems from 1 car and 1 operative to multiple vehicles and operatives, all of which can be designed specifically to suit a client's requirement.
We undertake the installation of lane closures on any style of road .From a 30mph A road to a 3 lane closure on the M1 or M25. Our highly experience staff will execute each job with the professionalism and efficiency regardless of the size or setting . The closures can be tailor made and designed to incorporate other aspects of traffic management such as temporary speed limit systems, speed cameras, temporary containment barrier (please see temporary road restraint systems) and more. All lane closures are installed, maintained and removed in accordance with Chapter 8 guidelines and by fully trained operatives in accordance with the National Highways Sector Scheme 12A/B or 12D.

We can design and install any type of road closure for any requirement whether it is a 5 sign diversion around a town centre or a 300 sign diversion for the closure of a key route or motorway.
All works can be tailored to suit a client's needs and can be designed to incorporate gatemen or ambassadors where required. A gateman's role can be developed to suit the site environment and access requirements as specified by the client, such as gatemen on all point closures, handouts to pass to motorists or even access passes to hand to residents in advance of the works.
All of our operatives undergo additional training designed in house for interacting with members of the public in all possible circumstances such as diverting motorists away from key locations on complex road closures. Our operatives are fully experienced with these types of situations and are able to deal with and resolve issues on site when they arise, many including difficult circumstances where a member of the public has isn't familiar with the area and is unsure of where to go.
