CIHT Awards June 2015

Lochwynd were delighted to attend the recent CIHT awards with Redspeed International who, along with Carillion Morgan Sindall JV, were winners of the CIHT/Colas Technological Application Award for the A1 Leeming to Barton ECI. The award recognises excellence in the application of technology within the highways and transportation industry, where a marked positive benefit has been achieved.

The A1 between Leeming and Barton is an all-purpose two lane dual carriageway carrying in the region of 50,000 vehicles a day, with approximately one quarter being heavy goods vehicles. The route had historically had a poor accident record, with continuing safety congestion and journey time reliability problems. As subcontractor to Redspeed, Lochwynd were carrying out TASCAR works (Temporary Automatic Speed Cameras At Roadworks).

Judges’ commented “By extending the use of the average speed cameras at minimal extra cost, the judges were impressed by how this innovative application of technology had greatly improved the enforcement of lane restrictions for LGVs.”

Well done to Redspeed International, Carillion Morgan Sindall JV and our own Lochwynd staff who continue to be involved in the project.
