Metal culverts are conduits that are placed underneath the road surface for drainage of the ditches located at the end of back slopes. These culverts are extremely important for the integrity of road structures. Without the metal culverts in place underneath roads with crowned drainage systems at specific intervals, the water flow in the ditch

The road cone has an interesting history. The concept was the brainchild of Charles Scanlon, a painter employed by the Los Angeles Street Painting Department. The road cone was patented in the early ’40s. The United Kingdom, however, was the first country to adopt the use of traffic pylons. What made the road cone so

Traffic cones are known by names such as pylons, safety cones, construction pylons, and even “witches’ hats”, because of their shape. The word “cone” is also indicative of the design, because the pylon looks like an ice cream cone turned upside down. As suppliers of traffic cones will explain, the pylon design is like that

Truck-Mounted Attenuators Truck-mounted attenuators are known by many names, including impact attenuators and truck-mounted crash cushions. Regardless of what these traffic control and safety devices
Road maintenance is essential to ensure the safety of motorists, pedestrians, and cyclists in South Africa. However, such maintenance works pose a safety risk while they are in progress. Road users are faced with unexpected obstacles, changes to lanes, and various other roadside hazards, such as sand, gravel heaps, heavy machinery, and road workers. Optimum
A guardrail is a type of barrier that prevents a road user’s vehicle from straying off the safe road path into an obstacle at the side of the road, or into a pedestrian or cyclist. It also has the purpose of reducing the severity of an accident related to an errant vehicle leaving the safe
Highway barriers are installed on the median of double-carriageway freeways and on the side of freeways. With vehicles travelling at high speed on highways, it is essential to prevent them from moving into oncoming traffic during accidents and to prevent motorists from making U-turns over the median into the fast lane of the opposite carriageway.
Corrugated steel pipes are often the material of choice in sewage, stormwater, and drainage applications and for good reason. The pipes are economical, structurally strong, easy to install in comparison with many other types of materials, and durable. But, let us take a closer look at the applications, design, and top advantages of corrugated steel
Stockpile tunnels are designed for the reclaiming of minerals at mines. As such, these tunnels must be extremely strong, durable, and able to carry considerable weight. Stockpile tunnels may also be used to feed minerals to the conveyer belts for transportation to the relevant areas. Flexibility in design is therefore important, since slight curving may
