TITLE
Elstow visitors’ site map
ARTICLE
Elstow is a complex site and historically there have been incidents of vehicles and visitors getting lost despite being directed from the weighbridge to their intended destination. This brought the risk of a dangerous incident for visitors to the site.

The solution was to produce a leaflet which showed the traffic flows, loading points and offices so that visitors and people unfamiliar with the site could find their way safely to their destination and avoid heavy traffic in the process. Also included on the leaflet were details of fire assembly and first aid points, site rules and instructions as well as an aerial shot of the site.

The leaflet has helped visitors get to their destination safely where they can undergo a formal site induction.
