Anti-slip manholes test

Published: 13 May 2006

Updated: 19 November 2014

A new type of anti-skid manhole cover is being trialled in Bristol, as part of the new Broadmead development.

Bristol is the first city in Europe to introduce the new covers, alongside designing roads to avoid covers on bends where heavy braking is likely. The Broadmead development will also feature new motorcycle parking areas designed in accordance with the Institue of Highway and Incorporated Engineers Guidelines for Motorcycling.
