Vehicle marshals are having to constantly exchange the ballast on the traffic signs and cones due to wear and tear resulting in splitting.
Not only is it dangerous as the signs can be blown over by strong winds or passing traffic, the hessian sand bags are also bulky and heavy to handle.
CSJV procured Traffic Sacks – a lightweight product that weighs less than a kilo until you want to use it.
When the team needs the ballast they simply soak the sacks in water and the polymer absorbs it, reducing the risk of manual handling injuries.
