COMPCO Fire Systems - A3 Hindhead Tunnel Safety Exercises

Hindhead Tunnel - Highways England - Fire Protection - Fire Systems


Highways England has recently completed their safety exercise which was held in the A3 Hindhead Tunnel, which Compco Fire completed the infrastructure for in 2011.

The exercise included simulating a collision involving multiple vehicles, with one vehicle catching fire and filling the tunnel with smoke. The aim of the exercise was to test the response of the tunnel operators and the emergency services, as well as also showing that everything in the infrastructure was working well.

It is a legal requirement that full scale tests like these are to be completed once every 4 years. Here at Compco we are proud of our work on a project of such great scale and exercises like this only continues to show our success.
