Safety features on vehicles

Drivers should be especially vigilant to ensure the movement of vehicles and plant on and around site is not a risk to pedestrians, cyclists, workers and other road users.

Vehicles can also be adapted to minimise safety risks and encourage drivers, road users and pedestrians to be more aware of their surroundings.

Examples of how vehicles could be adapted to make them safer include:

  • High visibility warning signs were added to the side and rear of delivery vehicles;
  • Reversing and turning alarms were updated on vehicles, to raise awareness amongst pedestrians and cyclists;
  • A side scanning detection system and side guard protection barriers were introduced on both sides.
