Incidents and roadworks – A road user perspective

“Consider the needs of people in vehicles, not just what the engineers need, when you get the orange cones out.”

This report from Transport Focus explores road user experiences of planned roadworks and unplanned disruption.

Recommendations include planning shorter roadworks, 24/7 working and involving the freight industry more in roadworks planning. It also encourages more work to help release trapped traffic, preventing vehicles from joining the back of a long queue and providing more helpful information when they are stuck.
