A14 Integrated Delivery Team and DriveTech collaborate to strengthen road safety performance and driver behaviour
DriveTech is delighted to be the driver risk management partner of the A14 Integrated Delivery Team (IDT) on Highways England’s A14 Cambridge to Huntingdon Improvement scheme.
The scheme is currently the UK’s largest road project, representing a significant government investment. This vital upgrade will relieve congestion, enhance national economic growth and help to connect communities in the area. The scheme includes the construction of a new 12-mile bypass, the widening and improvement of existing roads and a major new bypass to the south of Huntingdon.
DriveTech, a leading occupational driver risk management provider, was selected to provide a comprehensive range of driver risk and training services. The programme is well underway, helping to support the A14’s safety imperatives which aim to ensure that everyone goes home safely every day. As part of the programme, DriveTech provides driving licence checks, online driver assessments and e-learning. So far 600 drivers on the project have been assessed.
DriveTech is pleased to be associated with the A14 IDT in this way, helping to improve the road risk profile of the A14 team, its supply chain partners and members of the road using public.
Commenting on this road risk service provision, Andy Gibson, the A14’s Fleet Controller, said: “DriveTech is a committed driver risk management service provider and fits ideally with the IDT’s focus on setting high safety standards within the construction and engineering sector. As well as licence checking, the DriveTech online driver assessments and e-learning modules provide an effective means by which we can assess and classify the level of risk to which our drivers are likely to be exposed in their work. DriveTech’s support allows us to concentrate on delivering the project safely. They have also made it easy for me to work with them and helped in our own processes to make it easier for drivers too.”
