Rethink Active Travel with Rosehill Highways
In the two months since the government began advising against the use of public transport and promoting active travel, Rosehill Highways have supplied more than 28,000 metres of surface-mounted rubber segregation solutions to councils up and down the country, allowing the rapid expansion of cycle lane networks and pavement widening to help facilitate social distancing.
Ideal for temporary or permanent schemes and sustainably manufactured in the UK from recycled tyre rubber, Rosehill Highways’ lane segregation products can be installed quickly and with minimal disruption – a significant benefit on heavily trafficked roads.
Where carriageway width is limited, Rosehill Highways’ Narrow Cycle Lane Defenders are the perfect solution at just 235mm wide. Rated highly in TRL trials for safety, visibility, and ease of use, they comply with Cycling England and Sustrans guidelines for continuous and light segregation. On roads with higher speeds or wider carriageways, Rosehill Highways’ 500mm wide Lane Separators are recommended.
Both products are surface-mounted and can accommodate a variety of industry standard bollards.
Clare Riley, Sales Manager at Rosehill Highways, said: “Our products offer the perfect solution for segregating traffic, cyclists and pedestrians, and we’re working with councils across the country to create new protected cycle lanes and upgrade existing schemes. We look forward to seeing more schemes helping to improve the safety of active travel while facilitating social distancing.”
