TITLE
Traffic segregation
ARTICLE
There was a problem at the entrance to the quarry because all traffic was using it as the point of entry and exit. Hence, readymix traffic would need to interact with quarry traffic. In addition, parking, manoeuvring and reversing.were all candidates for improvement.

A new traffic system was installed to ensure the one-way flow of traffic and to minimise traffic manoeuvres. New direction signs have been installed on the approach to the weighbridge to direct traffic for the readymix plant away from the weighbridge and onto the new route, thus segregating it from the quarry traffic.
