Solar Speed Signs

A Safety Initiative

  • Focus Area


  • Location



In an effort to promote safe travel on our haul roads, Hunter Quarries has installed solar-powered speed signs at strategic locations across its sites.

The signs work by showing a green smiling face if speed limits are being observed, or a red face if not. These signs will help make operators of both heavy equipment and light vehicles aware of whether they are adhering to the company’s established speed limits.

The installation of these speed signs is an important step in Hunter Quarries’ ongoing commitment to safety. The haul roads can be steep with excessive speed posing a serious risk to operators and vehicles. By providing clear and visible LED indicator signs, the company hopes to reduce the likelihood of accidents and create a safer working environment for everyone.

In addition to the safety benefits, the installation of speed signs can also aid efficiency. By ensuring that vehicles are operating within the designated speed limits, Hunter Quarries can help to reduce wear and tear on equipment and infrastructure.

The installation of solar-powered speed signs is just one example of our commitment to safety.
