There’s around an hour’s worth of great transport technology talk on two podcasts from the popular and successful Traffex Seeing is Believing event at Bruntingthorpe in Leicestershire this week.
In the first programme, SMART Highways editor Paul Hutton talks to Kier about their two kilometre demonstration area with a range of innovative products from around the world that they are introducing onto England’s roads. Pole Products explain the huge safety benefits of passive safe poles for lighting and other roadside infrastructure, while WJ explain about their roadworker-safe products for lining and road stud installation.
On Day Two’s programme, we check out the crash demonstration and hear from Highways England about innovation and its new innovation portal, while the President of ADEPT talks about how local authorities find the money to invest in transport projects and which industry makes up the biggest road builder in Britain.
Kier explain about their innovation and how some of the things you see on their 2km demonstration track are from as far away as Australia as the company scours the globe for solutions to our industry’s challenges and there’s more international content as New Zealand-based Ohmio talk about their driverless pods while ITS (UK) explain why the networking at Traffex Seeing is Believing is so important.
