On Tuesday night, we lit up the iconic Rainbow Bridge on the A55 alongside a thank you message projected onto the nearby cliffside. We were delighted to honour the NHS, social care staff and other key workers with this one-off tribute on one of the network’s most well-known landmarks.
Our technology team worked closely with contractors SPIE to deliver this well-deserved display. Traffic Officers and Control Room operators were also on hand to support the effort and ensure traffic flowed smoothly. Despite, usually being one of the network’s busiest spots, the 70% yearly reduction in traffic volumes meant that key workers could be recognised safely and with minimal disruption to road users.
We’re very proud to be able to say this special thanks to all key workers who are working tirelessly during the Covid-19 pandemic. This includes our frontline colleagues who are ensuring Welsh roads remain safe and reliable to support essential journeys, keep freight moving and to allow emergency services to get to where they’re needed most.
