Traffic management specialist, Workforce Road Services, is currently experiencing significant growth. The business recently took delivery of 12 Isuzu NNR 200 single cabs and NPR 300 crew cabs to meet its requirements.
Workforce Road Services Northern Region Area Manager, Jamie Toole, said his crews were giving the new Isuzus a thorough working-over on a range of jobs between Muswellbrook, New South Wales and the Queensland border.
“Business is pumping at the moment, which is why we've recently put in an order for 21 Isuzu trucks,” he said. “We're dealing with a lot of big clients ranging from Leighton to Thiess, and the New South Wales Roads and Traffic Authority, managing a lot of the bypasses.”
Crews require a lot of gear to safely execute their traffic control duties. ”We basically need to carry everything from signs and boards to witches hats, flashing lights, crew members, and anything else we need for traffic control work,” Mr Toole said.
The new Isuzus have been fitted with custom racks and custom trays that have a drop-down back to ensure workers aren’t injured when carrying equipment on and off the trucks.
According to Mr Toole, the new Isuzu have been working well. “We've had no problems with them and they're good, reliable trucks which average between 14 and 22 jobs a day, travelling 70 to 80,000 kilometres a year.
“Our trucks have to be tough because a lot of different drivers with different driving styles get behind the wheel. Isuzu was the logical choice not just for the reliability side of things, but also for price and service.
