Our mission: Data-driven, constructible design solutions

We design what can be built in realistic conditions and with our client’s best interest at heart.


From research and development to real life solutions

FLUX - Movable Concrete Barrier

The research and development team was tasked with developing a movable concrete barrier that would meet both MASH (2016) as well as EN1317 standards.

The system will consist of the concrete barrier, transfer vehicle, end treatment and adjustable link.

Steel Branching Transition

The team at Safe Roads R&D identified the need for a steel transition from temporary concrete barrier to permanent concrete barrier. The transition was successfully tested to MASH (2016). 

The team is currently working on additional improvements using computer simulation and physical testing.
