SCP Offers Road Restraint Risk Assessment Services


Due to increased client demand, SCP has formed a national Vehicle Restraint Systems (VRS) technical working group.

The team have recently undertaken internal training in the use of National Highways’ Road Restraint Risk Assessment Process (RRRAP) software by Tim Wright, a ‘super-user’ of the software.

This training complements the existing assessments completed by the team using the ‘Provision of Road Restraint Systems on Local Authority Roads’ method of assessment and increases the team available within SCP to complete the assessments, which determine through a risk-based approach if VRS are required for highways sites.

SCP are able to add value to the overall design process by using this software to often design out the need for VRS through iterative changes made to the design such as sign positions and earthworks slopes.

The saving in the manufacture of steel VRS and its future maintenance once installed, significantly reduces carbon contributions energy use and the utilisation of raw materials in its production.

Please get in touch with SCP if you have any RRRAP or Local Authority Assessments that need completing.
