WJ has started working with authorities on marking more cycle lanes and social distancing footway demarcations, in line with the emergency measures the Department for Transport has called for.
Following a £250m commitment from government to support urgently needed extra cycling and walking space, WJ is advising councils on temporary markings including using tape, self-adhesive studs and their innovative Applied Media floor signage.
The Applied Media floor graphic system has been approved for use by Transport for London on the London Underground for some time.
It has also been used for London Pride rainbow crossings and very recently used for NHS Nightingale Hospital bus shuttle and social distancing measures on the Docklands Light Railway.
Leading markings company WJ has extensive experience in temporary markings, most notably providing all the markings for the London 2012 Olympic Route Network.
It is also a lead provider for Highways England across the strategic road network.
Martin Webb WJ Group Operational Director said: 'We are in a strong position to provide the resources, products and expertise to rapidly deliver temporary, permanent and specialist markings to help support these active transport schemes.'
With highways frontline work, classified as essential by government, the WJ Group has been working to Public Health England and Construction Leadership Council guidelines to remain operational throughout the COVID-19 crisis.
