“Thanks to the Safelane system, the Crews had just enough time to turn around and see the truck speeding towards them. As they safely moved out of the way, the truck smashed through the second ‘holding barrier’ sending the plastic barriers, cones and signs towards the Crews”
An Airlock entry system had been placed on the M25, junction 30 slip road onto the A13 by Skanska Balfour Beatty . To enhance the Crews safety, the Intellicone Safelane Panic Alarm/ Gatemen system had been deployed. The work crews who were resurfacing the highway were only 1/2 km further down the road. A few hours into the shift, the closure was breached by a white Bedford truck driver.
The Gateman immediately triggered his Panic Alarm, simultaneously setting off the Blue Crew Alarm, alerting them to move to safety. As the rogue driver saw the mass of flashing beacons in front of him, he sped up and forced his way through the holding point barrier, through the remainder of the roadworks and off site. All with the blatant disregard for the workforce.
