What are the benefits of road sweepers?

Road sweepers are considered an essential piece of machinery for a number of construction companies and local authorities. Despite their slow speed, road users appreciate their need to keep roads safe and useable.

Here are some of the benefits of road sweeping –

Reduce Breakdowns – Shards of glass, stray screws and debris are common causes of blown or damaged tyres and car breakdowns. The regular use of a road sweeper reduces accidents on busy roads.

Environment Protection – Roadside rubbish can be dangerous and life-threatening for wildlife who eat or get caught in plastic or discarded waste. Road sweeping removes discarded rubbish and any fly-tipping at the roadside whilst protecting unsuspecting animals from waste.

Prevent Flooding – When roadside gutters become clogged with rubbish or soil, this can affect the drainage and access to the sewers. This leads to overspill impacting nearby fields, homes and wildlife. Floods on roads are dangerous to motorists and detrimental to the environment.
