The Rosehill Heritage 1200 Rubber Traffic Island

July 22nd

Rosehill Highways is the expert when it comes to the design and manufacture of solid rubber traffic calming products; we are continually developing our products from valuable customer feedback.

We have often been asked to design a traffic island that complements villages, towns and cities that are especially valued for their historic character. The Heritage 1200 Rubber Traffic Island is ideal for these areas.

This attractive one piece rubber unit features a new paver design and is intended for urban and conservation areas. Delivered with the standard Rosehill fixing kit, the Heritage 1200 traffic island is very durable and conveniently flexes to the road camber.

The side walls incorporate reflective strips for high visibility and a reflective glass eye is available as an optional extra. Made from solid rubber, the unit absorbs impacts and will not crack or spall.

Perfect for small pedestrian refuges, the Heritage 1200 can be supplied as a complete kit with stick down tactiles.

Rosehill Cycle Lane Defenders – Doing their job!

July 15th

Our cycle lane defenders are being put to the test by Glasgow City Council on a project at Aitkenhead Road in Goven Hill, Cathkin near Glasgow. The project was to trial 3 cycle lane products – Rosehill’s and two other competitors’ less substantial units.

The installers from Macasphalt were working to a tight deadline and were keen to start installation. Our competitors’ products were not available, so they decided to install Rosehill’s 60 metre long line of continuous defenders first.

Unfortunately, before the signage, bollards and road markings that indicate the change of road use were completed, a large HGV hit the Rosehill Cycle lane defenders. The impact from this did not shift the Rosehill units from their position at all.

Glasgow City Council engineers were so delighted that they decided to order more of the Rosehill product to complete another scheme nearby.

Safer Cycling Solutions From Rosehill Highways

September 26th
Rosehill Highways have recently developed the Cycle Lane Defender, a versatile and substantial product engineered for coherent cycle schemes. It can be deployed to provide continuous or light segregation, minimising the danger to cyclists by excluding other traffic from the cycle lane.The long and solid rubber units require no excavation meaning less disruption. Dislodged or damaged units can be removed and replaced quickly. They can easily be retro-fitted into existing schemes. Integrated reflective glass eye and white marker options are available to enhance visibility.

Our Cycle Lane Defenders comply with Cycling England and Sustrans guidelines to make cycle lanes 2.0m wide whenever practicable, or 1.5m minimum. There are two Defenders available, narrow and wide, with and without drainage channels.

Morrison Supermarkets PLC

December 11th

The ‘Speed Calmer’ was chosen by Morrison Supermarkets for the speed control and regulation of HGV movements at their new manufacturing and distribution facility in Somerset. Their requirements were to reduce speeds to 5mph whilst ensuring a more controlled and smoother transit over the measure, without damaging the vehicle and more importantly – Its contents.

The unique calmer, being a larger and longer alternative to traditional speed ‘bumps’ offers the benefits of faster installation times and a more secure attachment to the surface, which if block paved can be problematic, in comparison to smaller alternatives which can detach and separate over time.

Optional corporate and speed markings were selected to reinforce and highlight the units, in addition to their willingness for the promotion and use of sustainable materials, being recycled rubber from HGV tyres.

Walsall Council

December 11th

2 metre wide D islands were chosen by Walsall Council to create their first surface fixed rubber pedestrian refuge.

The 6 metre long 4 piece refuge was installed in 3 hours, with minimal disruption to road users, low cost stop-go traffic management and no excavation required.

Staff and residents were delighted and impressed by the speed and simplicity of the fit, which transpired quickly into a fit for purpose refuge which blended seamlessly into the road and surroundings.

Positive comments reflected the successful installation which included “in the morning there was nothing and in the afternoon appeared a refuge Island; we are thrilled and impressed by the speed of installation and lack of disturbance, with minimal disruption”.
