Rennicks win Road Marking Project of the Year


Date: 10th November 2014

Road Marking Project of the Year was won by Rennicks working with East Ayrshire Council to improve Road Safety on the rural A719, south of Waterside, East Ayrshire, using Solar Active Road Stud Technology.

Judges comment:
“A high profile scheme using the latest technology in road studs to make a considerable improvement to road safety.”

Awarded to an organisation or Highway Authority, including joint submissions with the client and marking contractors/manufacturers, that has implemented a scheme or project which has improved road safety or network efficiency by making a significant improvement to road markings as a substantial part of the scheme. Other initiative and innovative ideas used in the scheme will be considered. The scheme must have been implemented within the past two years and have sufficient statistical evidence of its success.

 

Key Objectives

The overall objectives of the scheme were to improve safety and reduce all types of accidents on a 60mph stretch of road south of the village of Waterside on the A719 in East Ayrshire, whilst limiting damage to the environment. The A719 at this location carries some 4,500 vehicles per day!

With the use of Solar Powered, SR-15 Active Road Studs, East Ayrshire Council have seen a 100% reduction in reported accidents on this stretch of road since the project completion.

Key design innovations included:

• Active Road Studs with dual LEDs

• Improving safety whilst limiting the impact on the environment

• Ensuring all the relevant standards were met

• Long lasting, durable and sustainable products

Innovation and quality of the products used in the scheme.

The Rennicks SR-15 Active Road Studs use 4 LEDs (2 in each direction) with an internal prismatic system for high performance along with battery powered; solar recharged technology for environmental sustainability.

The LEDs are proactive not reactive like traditional studs, which means as soon as the light deteriorates they light up the road ahead. This enables drivers to see the road ahead much more clearly, up to 1km. The bends, curves and contours of the road are clearly lit which means road users can react to the road conditions much quicker.

Key safety benefits summary:

  • Bright delineation with road studs matching white lines
  • Providing rumble lane deviation warning
  • Advance warning of bends and curves in the road
  • Longer life products, so less traffic management required, aiding road worker safety

Overall impact on the environment.

Using solar panels to recharge the integral batteries which in turn power the Rennicks Active Road stud LEDs, meant that no external, mains power source was required. This makes the products very energy efficient and were therefore an excellent substitute to expensive and less environmentally friendly products such as street lights.

With a 10 Year Life, the products do not need replacing as frequently as traditional road studs, this has a positive impact on end of life products going to land fill as well as the cost to the environment of all the usual traffic management activities, and possible delays caused by road works.
