Contraflow has added an Isuzu 7.5-tonne Forward truck to its set up after being impressed by its manoeuvrability.

Contraflow added that the ease with which drivers can adjust the reversing speed of the truck to match staff on foot collecting traffic cones was another selling point.

“By law, when we collect traffic cones from roadworks that are completed, our vehicles are not allowed to drive in the opposite direction to the ongoing traffic.  

“As a result, much of this vehicle’s operation is spent reversing along the carriageway,“ said Jim Gardner, transport manager at Contraflow.

Currently working out of Contraflow’s depot in Hillington, Glasgow, the Forward N75.190 (E) is the first Isuzu to operate in the Contraflow fleet.

It was supplied by Isuzu Truck dealer, Imperial Commercials (Glasgow).
