Can you spot the potential road safety issue?

Road Safety Week provides an opportunity to raise awareness of the huge numbers of casualties that occur on our roads every single day and to highlight the actions that we all can take in order to reduce those casualties and to make our roads as safe as possible

At Waterman Aspen, road safety is something that we take very seriously, and our large national Road Safety Audit Team are out and about daily undertaking audits throughout the UK, dedicated to ensuring that new highway schemes are as safe as possible.

Even with the Lockdown restrictions, our RSA Team have been hard at work, with schemes arriving unabated and it has very much been ‘business as usual’ in recent months albeit with a few changes. We have had to adjust quickly to comply fully with the pandemic restrictions and Government guidance in place about safe working on site to ensure the health and safety not only of our own teams but also the public too. Examples of this being our Auditors having to travel to site in separate cars and maintaining social distancing at all times.

The other major challenge is how to assess a highway scheme when the roads are practically empty of cars and pedestrians, where Auditors have to draw upon their extensive experience to envisage what the proposed scheme would be like in normal traffic conditions. We would be interested to hear how others have got around the issue of assessing schemes without the usual road users present?
