Safety at roadworks

For the safety of road workers and all road users, when you are approaching roadworks, please obey the following:
- Keep within the speed limit – it is there for your safety.
- Get into the correct lane in good time – don’t keep switching.
- Concentrate on the road ahead, not the roadworks.
- Be alert for works’ traffic leaving or entering roadworks.
- Keep a safe distance – there could be queues in front.
- Observe all signs – they are there to help you.
- And be alert for road workers, the roads are their workplace.
