Surveys & Drawings

Site Surveys

Our fully-qualified team of Site Surveyors have many years’ experience in Traffic Management site setups and will be able to visit your proposed work site to assess your particular TM needs to enable you to carry out your work safely.

They will work closely with our Drawings Team and recommend the appropriate Chapter 8 Signing, Lighting and Guarding compliant TM setup.


From our dedicated call centre in Kemble, our Drawings Team can interpret specifications from our Site Surveyors or from your own instruction, to produce a CAD drawing which depicts your particular site layout and itemises each piece of equipment and signage that you will need.

These drawings are vital in the process of obtaining Local Authority approval for road closures and streetworks.

Local Authority Applications

We offer you the complete Traffic Management package, and that includes liaising with the relevant Local Authority obtain approval for your road closure. Through the use of our highly-skilled Site Surveyors and Drawings team, we are able to demonstrate full compliance on your behalf, and through discussions and ongoing liaison with the authority we can amend and update the drawings and application as necessary.

Should you have a longer-term project of a more complex nature, we can also support you by attending planning meetings to demonstrate and present the appropriate Traffic Management solution; giving piece of mind to all parties.

Installation & Dismantling


In many instances, our customers have their own Traffic Management installation teams, and we are happy to deliver the relevant Traffic Lights and Chapter 8 Signing, Lighting and Guarding to your premises for use by your own teams at the worksite.


Following a site survey, production of drawings, and necessary approvals we will work closely with you to ensure that your Traffic Management solution is setup on time, on budget and in the safest way possible, with the least disruption to your work.

Once installed, our in-house system allows us to take photos of the completed Traffic Management setup and upload them to our online portal, Axis. Once uploaded you have real-time access to a time-and-date-stamped record of the correct installation, in the right place, at the right time; giving you complete peace of mind.

Dismantling & Collection

Temporary signage and guarding which has been left on-site longer than the agreed lane/road closure limit will attract financial penalties from the local authority. Upon completion of your worksite, we will dismantle your Traffic Management setup and remove all temporary signing and guarding.

Call Centre & 24/7 Service

National Call Centre

Our call centre facility in Kemble, Gloucestershire, is a one-stop-shop and single point of contact for our traffic management customers. The highly skilled team have a great deal of experience in following robust, bespoke processes specific to individual customer requirements, as well as providing management information and monthly KPI dashboards.

The call centre is utilised by a number of our larger customers, as not only their single point of contact, but also as a professional meeting venue, when they have to present appropriate Traffic Management solutions to their own clients.

24/7 Call-Out Service

Ensuring that your Traffic Management setup is operating safely and efficiently at all times is our key priority. With the high interaction between passing road vehicles and your worksite, it is inevitable that sometimes signage and guarding is moved out of place or even knocked over completely. Faulty traffic signals can cause lengthy delays and tail-backs so that is why every piece of equipment features a national number which is manned 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. One call to that number will put you in touch with somebody who can contact the relevant depot to ensure that any issues on-site are quickly rectified, no matter what time of day or night.

Our 24/7 call out service can be contacted on 03700 500792
