The Road Emulsion Association has updated its “Code of Good Practice for the use & safety of Mobile Storage Tanks” in readiness for the 2014 surfacing season. Mobile Storage Tanks are transported to construction sites throughout the UK where they are used to aid road surfacing work.  After the Tanks are installed they are periodically filled with bitumen emulsion binder, which is drawn off for use in local highway construction and maintenance contracts. REA first developed the Code of Good Practice in the mid 1990s and the 2014 Code replaces that last revised in 2011. The Code aids the safe operation of works; and safety of members of the public; highway authorities and contractors, when in close proximity to Mobile Storage Tanks.

A copy of the latest 2014 version of the Code is available as a PDF file on the “Publications” page of this website.
