Bright New Road Markings That Do Not Cost The Earth!
If you have been visiting Devon recently the chances are you have used the A30 or A38 main dual carriageways, you have also probably noticed that sections of these very busy arterial routes have been receiving safety and maintenance improvements over the past few weeks. Enterprise Mouchel who manages the Area 1 Network on behalf of the Highways Agency recently employed QMS to over-mark and rejuvenate the existing edge and lane line with QMS HyperLine™ and to install new Roadstuds. These sections of rejuvenated line now have a brilliant white QMS HyperLine™ overspray, which is really noticeable during the day, however, drive along this same road at night and this is where QMS Hyperline™ really comes into its own. You will be astonished by how much brighter they are and how much further you can see the lines on the road ahead.
According to available information, in the thirty months preceding the installation, there were seventy-seven serious and four fatal incidents recorded on the M3 Motorway, which calculates to 2.57 serious and 0.13 fatal incidents per month.
In the six months following the installation of QMS HyperLine™, serious road traffic incidents had been reduced to seven and there were no fatalities along the same section of the M3 Motorway. This is a reduction of 1.4 serious incidents per month to 1.13 – Providing 100% saving in fatalities and 54% saving in serious incidents.
