NEMA is committed to continually improving and optimising the safety of crews completing mobile works on high volume roadways. As part of this commitment, NEMA has reviewed and updated the traffic management strategy to reflect best on ground practice. Additionally, the team has supplied their depots with several TMA units and upgraded work vehicles, fitting them out with new VMS signage and equipment.
During the busy and high-risk holiday season NEMA strategically placed VMS boards at all static work sites using emotive messaging, such as My dad works here and Drive Safely, to trigger safer motorist behaviour. The team has put in place these increased safety measures to ensure the safety of the network for road users, ensuring they return home to their families at the end of each day.
