Windsor hostile vehicle measures

Windsor

VolkerHighways installed the first phase of hostile vehicle measures, at six locations, around the busy, historical town of Windsor.

The hostile vehicle measures being used in Windsor are anti-terrorist protective measures, that are installed around buildings and public spaces that are of particular significance. The works were additional to VolkerHighways’ five-year highway management and maintenance contract with the Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead.

This project demonstrates VolkerHighways’ ability to respond to specific client needs with bespoke, value for money, high-quality solutions, that are appropriate to the local environment in which they are installed.
