Motorway Fuel Bikes Introduced to Reduce Traffic Jams

Corner Park Garages, Swansea and Cardiff

September 28, 2017 at 2:32 PM

In under two months 17 drivers have caused traffic jams on the M5 Oldbury Viaduct roadworks when they ran out of fuel.

This has lead Highways England (HE) to introduce rapid assistance motorbikes to carry emergency fuel to stranded motorists. The motorcycles are able to cut through traffic on the narrow lanes of the roadworks, allowing them to reach stranded drivers much more quickly than standard breakdown vehicles, which keeps traffic flowing.

Highways England project manager Alastair Warnes said: “Since the contraflow came into effect, we’ve already seen a number of fuel-related breakdowns in the roadworks section, 

In fact, on the very first day of the contraflow coming into effect, the first breakdown was caused by someone that had run out of fuel.

“By offering this type of assistance, we’re able to minimise disruption to others driving through the roadworks.”
