Case Studies

Novo55 was recently commissioned by the Treasury Solicitor. This was to provide opinion on the temporary traffic management arrangements, which were implemented on a major Highways Agency improvement scheme.

Following the implementation of a new phase of the construction, a serious vehicle crash occurred. A driver accessed the wrong carriageway and collided with a vehicle travelling in the outside lane of the opposing carriageway.

Novo55 was provided with a considerable volume of witness statements from employees of the Highways Agency, main contractor and temporary traffic management sub-contractor.
