“So this is something I am very excited about… It’s a safety initiative that is an absolute game changer for anyone like us that undertake mobile works at night where tower lights are not always an option. 

Having seen THE HALO advertised on LinkedIn we purchased some as a trial and promoted it through Ringway and our other community partners on Highways England South West CWF. 

Our guys were blown away by how effective the light was and how long the batteries lasted”.
