Contraflow delivers effective road traffic management systems, putting our focus in customer service and a thorough and detailed approach to every job undertaken. We attribute the success of our work to this approach, taking each job from the initial planning enquiry stage, through every aspect of traffic management, the planning process, to completion a fully catered traffic management solution. We conduct individual assessments for every site to ascertain specific and detailed information, liaising with local authorities and the police in order to obtain full support and agreement on our clients’ behalf.

By utilising the latest specialised software technology available, we can generate site-specific traffic management proposals that clearly demonstrate our commitment to providing the best solutions of our clients. We utilise computer packages such as AutoCAD and the CONE software 8 in order to build in-depth detailed and accurate site specific drawings that clients, contractors and local authorities can all easily see understand and identify how the traffic management system will look and operate.
