Highway Care

Highway Care’s Mobile Traffic Products division has been Engineering your safety for over 30 years. Highway Care prides itself on being at the forefront of road safety innovation throughout the world. Founded in 1976, by John Talbot the company started out as specialists in motorway and trunk road weed control and pioneered the use of 12c mobile traffic management. In 1990 the Company expanded into supplying specialist road safety products and services for use on motorways, high-speed trunk roads, and lower speed municipal roads. Highway Care provides industry leading products and professional service to its customers that include Government Agencies and its affiliates, becoming one of the leading UK suppliers of specialist road safety products within the road safety industry. Highway Care introduced the IPV Light Arrow in 1995 and further developed this with the first Vertical Lift Light Arrow in 2002. At the request of Highways England, we designed the first cost-effective Red ‘X’ LED Light Arrow in 2004.The recently revised Red ‘X’ obtained DFT and HE authorisation in 2017, consisting of a new dual coloured lamp using the latest LED technology integrated with a reliable lower prism sign and the UK’s most popular crash cushion; Safe Stop 90 HD. Highway Care’s Road Barrier products division is a leading provider of Vehicle Restraint Systems (VRS). Our portable steel barrier, BG800®, was developed in the late 90’s and rigorously tested to meet the highest demands throughout the world, having exceptional performance levels of any portable steel barrier, achieving EN1317 -N2, H2 and NCHRP 350 TL-3 and TL4, and MASH TL-3 criteria. In addition to the BG800 range, Highway Care supplies a range of permanent safety barriers including Tertu Timberrail, a high performance, aesthetically pleasing VRS with wooden cladding for areas of outstanding natural beauty. With N1, N2 & H2 containment levels Tertu TimberRail provides a variety of working widths ranging from W3 to W7. The Road Zipper (formerly ‘QuickChange’ Moveable Barrier) to the UK in the early 1990s, Highway Care is the leading provider of this innovative system, with over 20 years experience. The Road Zipper is a unique barrier, providing immense opportunities to contractors involved in major highway reconstruction and road widening schemes. As part of their portfolio, Highway Care supplies a range of P4 end terminals, gates and crash cushions, that can be adapted for use at permanent locations and also as a temporary system in addition to a portable steel barrier. Our SoSec Highways Access Gate is the latest addition to the product portfolio. It is the first solar powered barrier access gate that offers a truly mobile and fully automated solution for highways application for temporary site and works access. The barrier can be deployed quickly to provide instant security; improving site safety by limiting access and preventing unauthorised work site incursions.
