A cycle safety awareness day was held by Heysham M6 link road contractors Costain.

The event took place at the Halton Road site and gave cyclists and the attending public an opportunity to sit in a Large Goods Vehicle (LGV) to observe driver’s blind spots and understand what they can see on the road.

There was also a team on hand from Lancashire Police carrying out security stamping on bicycles.

Costain Safety, Health and Environment manager, Nicola Uijen said “Children as well as parents were given an incredible opportunity to sit behind the wheel of LGV’s such as stone wagons, and dump-trucks capable of carrying 40 tonnes of earth to find out what the drivers see when they’re driving.

“The day was a great success and gave everyone an opportunity to learn more about cycle safety and the Link Road.”
