An announcement about two innovative open source safety solutions for roadworks zones on dual carriageways will launch a new feature of Traffex 2019 – live news conferences from the exhibition floor at Europe’s biggest highways and transport technology show this year.
Highway safety and mobile traffic product supplier Highway Care will speak in the Trading Floor Theatre at 9.35 on Tuesday 2 April about its solutions to keep workers safe behind barriers and remind drivers to keep a safe distance from the vehicle in front, including a very innovative use of VMS.
