DELTABLOC UK Ltd | Delivering Safety as Red Bull Racing Comes Home

DELTABLOC UK Ltd. is a leading road safety company that specialises in the production and installation of precast concrete barriers.

These crash-tested safety barriers are designed to protect all road users and road workers from potential accidents and collisions, making them an essential component of any road infrastructure project.

On December 9th, 2022, the company was tasked with delivering and installing safety barriers for the Red Bull Formula 1 racing ‘homerun’ event in Milton Keynes. This was a high-profile event that required the company to work quickly and efficiently to ensure that the barriers were in place in time for the event.

The Milton Keynes Homerun gives the public the chance to see the drivers, the team and the cars up close as they displayed their skills along Midsummer Boulevard – right in the heart of Milton Keynes. As a non-ticket event, fans just came along and enjoyed a day that they’ll never forget. For DELTABLOC UK, the Homerun becomes an event where the safety of over 30,000 people is paramount.

Despite the tight deadline, DELTABLOC UK was able to deliver and install the barriers on Friday, December 9th, the day before the event. The company’s team of experts worked tirelessly to ensure that the barriers were properly placed and secured, providing a safe and secure environment for the showpiece to take place.

The event itself saw a plethora of Red Bull heroes showcase their skills, from motocross riders to stock car drivers, all building the crescendo the main event, the appearance of Formula 1 World Champion Max Verstappen and his teammate, Sergio ‘Checo’ Perez.

With the event over, the crowds headed home, but DELTABLOC UK still had plenty to do. The company quickly removed the barriers and had the roads clear and back open ready for use by Sunday, December 11th, 2022.

This quick turnaround time demonstrated the company’s commitment to customer service and their ability to meet the needs of their clients.

DELTABLOC UK ‘s delivery and operational capability, in addition to highly durable and efficient products, all backed up by the company’s team of experts makes DELTABLOC UK a top choice for road safety projects.

DELTABLOC UK Managing Director Kevin Wrigglesworth commented: “This was a really fun and exciting project for us. It’s not every day you’re setting the platform for some of the best motorsport athletes in the world to do their thing,” Kevin commented.

“With that said, our team were fantastic, and were as professional as we’ve come to expect by not letting the fun and excitement detract from priority number one – an efficient operation with the safety of everyone involved at the forefront of our activities.

“This was a fantastic opportunity to showcase our products alongside our delivery and operational capability in a unique setting when compared to installing on the UK’s roads. It was a step outside of the box for us, fantastic for our reputation and adds to our repertoire of services.

“It’s nice to know that some of the most successful organisations in the world turn to DELTABLOC UK in times of need and we look forward to working on this type of event again soon.”
