The move is part of a campaign by consultant Atkins to cut the death and accident toll among roadworkers.
The number of injuries to roadworkers on motorways and trunk roads in England more than doubled between 2005 and 2009.
Figures from the Highways Agency showed injuries increased from 50 in 2005 to 110 in 2009, but the number of fatalities fell from five to one.
Atkins has launched the safety campaign after a number of its workers were involved in near misses with careless drivers.
The Safe by Choice campaign will focus on the role Impact Protection Vehicles (IPVs) play in protecting roadworkers and the use of CCTV on Stop/Go boards to identify drivers who ignore the signs and drive straight through roadworks.
Atkins developed a training DVD for lorry drivers after an employees’ Impact Protection Vehicle was hit by a lorry, whilst he was protecting a team of road workers in the carriageway.
The DVD is being distributed to a number of lorry firms across the UK, and is also posted on YouTube here.
Atkins worker Steve Clayton developed new CCTV Stop/Go boardsas a way of gathering evidence to assist in prosecuting offenders from similar incidents.
He said: “CCTV cameras in the Stop/Go board, enables us to film anyone driving through the stop sign or anyone found to be abusing our people.
“We can then take the footage to the police who could file for prosecution. These sorts of measures are now vital as the only alternative if this sort of dangerous behaviour continues may be to close roads in order to carry out works.”
Atkins’ campaign will be featured on BBC’s Inside Out East of England programme on BBC 1 and BBC One HD tonight at 7.30pm.
