A614 Casualty Reduction Scheme
This is a Road Safety Remedial Scheme to reduce the number of fatal and seriously injured accidents that have occurred on a major road in Nottinghamshire.
Effective reduction in speeds through the use of SPECS enforcement resulting in excellent casualty reduction figures.
Sonia Hurt, Nottinghamshire County Council:
It’s an absolute honour to be able to accept the Award on behalf of Nottinghamshire County Council.
I think the fact that [our scheme] has been extremely successful in reducing casualties on the A614 and the fact that it was innovative, and there were a lot of ‘firsts’ in the scheme that hadn’t actually been utilised elsewhere in the country.
In a 5-year period we had 289 casualties. Since the scheme has gone in … we’ve had no fatalities and the overall percentage in terms of reduction has been exceedingly high.
[The Highways Magazine Excellence Awards are] extremely important because I think it’s at a time when we are all very vulnerable and it’s all about partnership working and moving things forward, being innovative and creative and I think it just helps to raise the profile of what we do today.
