Smart & Safe

Located at the rear of the exhibition hall is this year’s Smart & Safe feature area. This will enable Traffex visitors to see products at close hand including the life-saving products employed by the emergency services to deal quickly and safely with incidents on the road network. All this as part of a “Public Highway” environment in which cars, LGVs and emergency services vehicles will be part of the fully interactive feature layout incorporating a real crash scene and a live road works area.

It incorporates the following features:

The Smart Street

Highlighting and displaying some of the most cutting edge, innovative products in the industry today, this area is expected to inspire visitors and show what’s possible when transforming your local urban surroundings by creating a realistic environment where exhibitors can display new technological, practical and cost effective safety solutions.

Highways England Smart Motorway

A working realistic demonstration will provide visitors with the opportunity to appreciate how active traffic management (ATM) techniques are used to increase motorway capacity by use of variable speed limits and hard shoulder running at busy times.

Retroreflective Theatre

Here visitors can witness the full effect of retroreflectivity from the drivers perspective – use our personal light source gadgets to see for yourselves how far we have come in the development of the materials used for signs, bollards, marker posts, PPE, vehicle conspicuity, road markings and studs.

Vehicle Demonstrations & Product Display

There will be static displays and timetabled live demonstrations of products used in Temporary Traffic Management areas being carried out either on or adjacent to live carriageways or other environments to which the public have access.

The demonstrations include:

WJ Group - demonstrating and explaining the safety and functionality of their latest WJ Automatic Bag Loader vehicle.

Highway Care – showcasing their Traffic Management Vehicle with SafeStop 90 cushion and Red X LED Light Arrow.

SAPA – demonstrating and explaining the safety and TM benefits of their Hinged Signal Pole.
