Moveable barriers speed-up works and save lives

The QuickChange Moveable Barrier (QMB) is a more versatile version of the traditional concrete barrier. It is lifted and moved laterally across the carriageway by the Barrier Transfer Machine (BTM). The QMB allows the carriageway to be divided and work areas protected more quickly, flexibly and safely than is possible with traditional barriers or cones on their own. As well as lessening the exposure of the workforce, it is already helping contractors to complete works ahead of schedule. This article looks at the benefits of using the QMB and the Dynamic Roadspace Utilisation Manager.
