New guidance is allowing the highways sector to maintain worker safety and social distancing, while aiming to operate as close to business as usual as possible. This podcast features an interview with Suffolk Highways' assistant director of operational highways Mark Stevens.
“How do you mitigate the effects of Coronavirus day to day, and equally how do you build a post Covid-19 future?” asks Mark Stevens, as he reflects on the challenges – and opportunities – for the roads sector during the crisis.
Mark has been part of a joint public and private sector effort to develop guidance for the highways sector that will allow safe operating procedures for highways maintenance and improvement operations during the pandemic.
CIHT has been one of the partners involved in developing the guidance.
The guidance will be available shortly, the website page will be updated with the link when the guidance is available.
