Site Proximity Warning Systems

15 Feb 2018

Scottish Road Research Board (SRRB) commissioned an investigation into how safety on road construction projects can be improved using site proximity warning systems (PWS). These systems use innovative technology to create safe working environments by reducing the risk of accidental collisions between plant/ site vehicles and operatives as well as valuable assets.

30 Jan 2018

A summary of responses to the Call for Evidence for the National Transport Strategy Review

Dealing with coal tar bound arisings

9 Jan 2018

Second and more detailed phase of research study to produce updated national guidance for all roads authorities and statutory undertakers on to deal safely and cost effectively with tar bound arisings.

Carbon Account For Transport Volume 9, 2017

18 Dec 2017

The Carbon Account for Transport provides a balance sheet for Scotland’s greenhouse gas emissions between 1990 and 2015, and the impacts of transport related policies and projects expected to affect these emissions

Route Safety Strategy

9 Nov 2017

Research project to investigate whether there are any policies, strategies or mitigations adopted within Norway and Sweden which, historically, have a better record of road safety than Scotland that could influence road safety trends in Scotland.

Trials of Brine Spreading Performance on Scotland’s Roads: Phase 3

27 Oct 2017

Phase 3 of study to carry out further trials to investigate the use of brine-only for snow treatmentsand various ‘blended’ liquids that are effective at preventing ice on carriageways.

Renewable Energy Generation and Distribution from Road Network Assets

2 Oct 2017

First phase of research is to develop a process for assessing the implementation of renewable proposals (energy generating devices) for use in Road Authority context in Scotland from inception to completion.

Estimate of the Impact on Emissions of a Reduction in Air Departure Tax in Scotland

16 Aug 2017

A procedure for justifying aggregate use based on in-service skid performance

1 Aug 2017

Study to establish a methodology to determine the in-service properties (skid-resistance) of locally sourced aggregate, thereby allowing the road maintenance community access to additional sources of materials from local Scottish quarries.

EME2 with Softer PEN Bitumen (Phase 2)

1 Aug 2017

Second phase of initial research into the potential use of softer pen EME2 materials on the Scottish road network. The study will take the outcomes of the initial laboratory testing work in order to develop design curves for pavement design.
