Double delight is rich reward for intelligent thinking


Date: 3rd November 2014

TWO projects which could set the blueprint for a fresh approach to road safety have sparked a double celebration for a leading highways technology company.
Rennicks landed the title of Road Marking Project of the Year for a ground-breaking scheme in Scotland using solar-powered active road stud technology.

And the company also clinched an ITS Excellence award after providing the largest solar-powered variable message signs for the inter-urban motorway network in Ireland

George Lee, national director of the Road Safety Marking Association, presents the Road Safety Marking Project of the Year Award to the team at Rennicks and East Ayrshire Roads Alliance.

Group managing director Michael Flanagan says the prestigious industry prizes are rich reward for the company’s intelligent approach.

He said: “We are looking to make big strides in the world of intelligent traffic solutions (ITS) so these awards are a great boost to everyone involved.

“Intelligent thinking is at the core of our business and this success is a clear illustration that we’re on the right track.”

Innovative LED Active Studs provided by Rennicks UK made a big impact in Scotland, where a local authority became the first in the country to install the technology on a major route.

Incidents on a stretch of the A719 in East Ayrshire have since been reduced by 100 per cent.

The SR-15 units use LED and solar technology to create delineation shown to be far more effective than traditional retroreflective road studs.

Road safety expert Alan Vass, of the Ayrshire Roads Alliance, said such dramatic results could prompt a new approach to highway markings across the country.

The scheme was named Road Project of the Year at the Highways Magazine Excellence Awards in London last week.

Rennicks won the ITS Ireland award after supplying the National Roads Authority with three 5.1 x 3.6m fixed solar-powered full matrix signs capable of remote communication and control.

Dave O’Keefe, chief executive of ITS Ireland, presents the Excellence Award to Niall Molloy, national sales manager for Rennicks.

The company’s latest solar technology means this is the first time such a solution has been possible on rural sections of the country’s road network, where there has been limited access to electricity supplies.

The signs, which deliver VMS capability in almost any location, were installed as part of a pilot project at strategic locations on the M7, M8 and M11 in Ireland.

Both projects will deliver huge lifetime savings, both in terms of energy costs and impact on the environment.

The award was presented at a glittering ceremony in Limerick, Ireland.
