Essential surfacing works were scheduled for Kiln Lane roundabout which necessitated the full closure of the carriageway for a five-day period. Ringway Surrey was the main contractor, supported by Triplex Traffic Management. As with every closure, road worker safety is paramount and Triplex wanted to ensure that their workers and subcontractors were safe from potential incursions and had minimal contact with road users to avoid any unnecessary confrontations.
An additional challenge was that two major businesses, Sainsbury’s and Royal Mail, had depots located within the closure. The potential for serious disruption to their operations during these works was significant.
Having previously used IIPAWS® on other works, Triplex approached HRS to explore the possibility of installing this system at the closure points of the Kiln Lane works. On previous works, they had experienced an unauthorised incursion but thanks to IIPAWS® their workers had time to get to a place of safety.
After discussing the closure with Triplex we agreed that installing IIPAWS® at closure points would allow them full digital control of closure points onsite. Whilst also allowing them to manage authorised access for vehicles from Sainsbury’s and Royal mail.
IIPAWS® Portable Site Alarms were installed at the closure points, supported by Intellicam® to capture video footage of any unauthorised incursions which could be used to challenge complaints or pursue prosecutions.
The installation of IIPAWS® on these works delivered a number of benefits including:

“IIPAWS® has been invaluable as it has notified our workers onsite when authorised and unauthorised vehicles have entered the site, giving them time to ensure their own safety. I’ve used this system on other schemes and its never failed to enhance both safety and efficiency whenever it’s been used.”
