Rubber Solutions for Highways
Our role in the highways industry
Highways is a subsidiary of the Construction and Civil-Engineering industry and together these industries bring in trillions worth of revenue year in and out. This sector works hard and diligently to keep the general populous safe and to help them get from A-B.
Workforces all over the UK work, days and nights to maintain roads and create new routes. The Highways industry market size currently stands at £329.86 billion globally with a growth rate of 6.8%, this expected to rise to £437.22 billion by 2027.
At Walker Rubber we design and manufacture components fit for the highways industry in-house at our facility in Norwich UK.

- Speed bumps
- Fenders for barricades and central reservations
- Fenders for bridges and roads

Checkout our exclusive Rollaway Bank Ladders
Developed to help workers access steep-sided ditches quickly and safely, our rollaway flexible bank ladders provide a simple solution to the problem of getting up and down steep slopes. This has proven very popular with Rail and Civil Engineering projects, with it being especially helpful for emergency or temporary use. These Ladders can be linked together to access deep cuttings or steep embankments, roofs and dome-shaped structures significantly improving foothold and reducing risk.
Our bank ladders can help your workers navigate their way safely up and down uneven surfaces like the verges next to highways to plant new trees or implement further safety measures.View Our Bank Ladder Here
HighwaysRubber fenders and bumpers for bridges and highways
Here at Walker Rubber, our specially extruded bumpers and fenders can be used as a way to protect various areas on the highways and bridges. Extrusions are implemented on bridge sides and barricades to offer more protection to drivers. As well as avoiding any unwanted vibrations that can affect the foundations of any particular structure.
Wall protection is an absolute must on the roads as accidents can happen at any time. It’s important that in the result of an accident, we have the necessary means to stop that vehicle and absorb as much of the impact as possible. Our rubber fender wall protectors can help lessen the impact of fast-moving vehicles falling off the road or careening into walls or barriers.
Did you know...?
To collect robust and reliable data on traffic movements, companies need flexible and durable equipment that is properly protected and able to withstand harsh condition and various conflicting measures. The workers also require ways to access uneven work areas and surfaces. We designed and manufactured extruded profiles sand rollaway bank ladders in our own factory in Norwich. This only took a matter of days enabling our customer to deploy their safe and secure cable management system both quickly, safely and effectively.
