Enterprise Invests £55m To Expand UK Traffic Management Fleet

27 August 2021

Enterprise Flex-E-Rent is investing £55 million in 200 new HGV and LCV traffic management vehicles in the UK to support ever-growing demand from the road infrastructure sector for commercial vehicle hire.

These new vehicles are available for both daily and long-term flexible rental from any of our 28 specialist depots around the UK.

The investment includes 40 18-tonne traffic management trucks equipped with Scorpion crash cushions and eight dedicated block vehicles, used for road maintenance, verge management and lane closures on both local and high-speed road networks.

A further 40 lightweight 7.2-tonne plastic-bodied trucks, made in highly durable and fully recyclable copolymer plastic, will help operators maximise vehicle payload. This enables them to carry enough signs in one vehicle for a 2km lane closure and makes them ideal for works on both urban and high-speed roads.

Enterprise are also expanding the highway LCV fleet with 35 new mobile lane closure vehicles (MLCs) with hydraulic sign boards and a further 80 3.5-tonne dropside vans with tail lifts and low-bodied flat beds.

All 200 specialist vehicles are equipped with the latest safety features, such as improved access and egress points and improved lighting.

The 18-tonne trucks also feature Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme (FORS)-compliant and Direct Vision Standard (DVS)-compliant multi-camera digital video recorder and camera systems, with live feed if required. These cameras are designed to reduce the risk of accidents when cyclists approach the vehicle at what was formerly the driver’s blind spot.
