“For the safety of road workers and all road users, when you are approaching roadworks 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.”
