How can you improve the most dangerous stretches of road?

Congratulations to all councils who have been successful with bids for the Safer Roads Fund!

Why is it important?

The Safer Roads Fund was made available to improve the 50 most dangerous stretches of ‘A’ roads in England. The UK has some of the safest roads in the world, but every road death is an unnecessary tragedy.

Each local authority is in a good position to understand how the ‘A’ roads in their area could be made safer. A few examples of how they could be made safer are:

  • Appropriate signage and road markings
  • Better lighting
  • Safe pedestrian crossings
  • Reduce variability of speed
  • Improved link roads

How can we help?

Here at CCS, our commercial arrangements align with the Safer Roads Fund, meaning we can help you improve the most dangerous stretches of road.

Variable message signs, lighting, pedestrian crossings, traffic signals, average speed cameras and road safety studies are all in scope of our Traffic Management Technology 2 framework.

If you would like to find out more about how we can help you, please get in touch.
