Improving HGV Driver Behaviour Through Road Works

It is important to ensure the safety of your workforce and encourage good behaviour at all times.

Sites should identify common problems encountered when working on highways and adopt initiatives to overcome any issues.

Below is an example of how driver behaviour and safety was improved:

  • The site won a CIHT Technological Application Award for the enforcement of lane 2 prohibitions for HGV use;
  • The objective was to create a cultural change in heavy good vehicles (HGV) driver behaviour through road works;
  • This initiative used firstly warnings, learning and education, and then enforcement methods utilising the existing enforcement cameras with dual capability for enforcement of both speed and weight restrictions;
  • This initiative has resulted in a 85% reduction in lane two violations, which has improved the safety through road works for both road users and workers.
