What level of chapter 8 does my vehicle need?
The level of Chapter 8 coverage required for your van depends on its specific use within temporary traffic management operations. Below are the three levels of Chapter 8 coverage commonly referred to:
Level 1: This level applies to vehicles that stop for work purposes on high-speed roads, including motorways and dual carriageways.
Level 1 requirements typically involve using high-visibility markings, such as reflective material, on the rear of the vehicle, and deploying traffic management measures to ensure visibility and safety.
Level 2: Level 2 applies to vehicles that operate on roads with a speed limit below 40 mph, including urban and rural roads.
In addition to the rear markings, Level 2 vehicles require reflective material on the sides, following specific chevron patterns. This enhances the visibility of the vehicle to approaching traffic from different angles.
Level 3: Level 3 is applicable to vehicles that operate on roads with a speed limit of 40 mph or less and where works pose a substantial risk to workers or road users. Level 3 requirements include rear and side high-visibility markings, additional lighting, and prominent signage. These measures ensure maximum visibility and alertness to potential hazards.
To determine the specific level of coverage your van needs, consider factors such as the speed limits of the roads where you will be operating, the nature of the works, and any specific local requirements. It’s important to consult the latest edition of the Chapter 8 guidelines or speak to us directly for advice regarding compliance.
