TITLE
Traffic light controls to safeguard pedestrians
ARTICLE
The weighbridge at Cruicks Quarry in Inverkeithing can only be accessed by crossing the busy main road coming into the quarry. A risk assessment highlighted the potential hazard and a pedestrian walkway with traffic lights was installed.

This same system was installed in three further parts of the quarry, including an internal haul road, which
crosses the main incoming road. Although the latter generally has right of way, the mobile plant operators
can change the light from red to green using a hand-held remote control unit.
