A75 Stranraer to Gretna – Autumn 2017

As sub-contractor for Clearview Intelligence, for their client Scotland Transerv, carried out various civils, loops and traffic management works to provide vehicle count and classification with variable speed awareness across several locations on the A75 Stranraer to Gretna Green, the main route from northern England to the ferry ports for Northern Ireland.

Following speed check surveys commissioned by Transport Scotland, a solution was needed that would encourage speed compliance and change driver behaviour.

This kind of vehicle activated, dynamic speed warning system serves as a highly visible and immediate reminder to drivers to monitor and manage their speeds appropriate to their vehicle type and it is a first of its kind in the UK.
