Higgins Construction hosts Beep Beep Day at King Square to promote Road Safety

Posted: 03/07/2016

Higgins Construction is extremely committed to the health and safety of the community who live around its projects and to support Brake’s Beep Beep campaign, the company organised a road safety event for pupils from Moreland Primary School on King Square Estate in Islington.

Paul Cooke, New Business Director at Higgins Construction comments, “As a company we are extremely committed to road safety and Brake. On the King Square Estate, Moreland Primary School is close to the construction site so it is vital that children have a clear understanding of the health and safety issues. Our health and safety mascot, Phil Safe, spent time with the children talking about the important messages in a clear and fun way so that the children could engage and understand more easily. We are delighted to continue supporting such a worthwhile campaign as the Beep Beep Campaign and health and safety on our roads and sites.”

As well as learning from Phil Safe, the children were also able to see inside the cab of a construction vehicle and experience for themselves how important safety is.

Higgins has been contracted by Islington Council to carry out the King Square Estate development and regeneration scheme, which includes the construction of six new blocks delivering 140 homes - 98 affordable dwellings (93 for social rent and five shared ownership) and 42 private residential for sale. Other notable redevelopment works include the refurbishment of the community nursery at Rahere House, creating communal storage areas, estate landscaping and public realm improvements.

Brake is the national road safety charity that exists to stop the needless deaths and serious injuries that happen on roads every day and make streets and communities safer for everyone.
