Below is an example of a signal which has been developed to reduce hazards on railway sites:
This method proves better than piling, pre cast or concrete bases that are expensive and require plant.
The RamPad base is suitable for the lightweight structures, which are hinged so they can be lowered for maintenance, instead of conventional systems which require ladders and platforms to access.
This has eliminated hazards such as working at heights and the dangers of overhead live electricity cables.
