What is a speed cushion?

A speed cushion is a modular traffic calming bump for public roads. The bump aims to slow vehicle traffic and reduce the risk of accidents. Speed cushions are commonly used in town and city-type areas.

Unlike speed bumps, speed cushions are longer from front to back and may not be as high. This won't reduce traffic speed as severely but will allow traffic to flow where needed. This makes them ideal for cities and towns where there is frequent emergency vehicle traffic.

Why use a speed cushion?

A speed cushion is used to slow traffic to a reasonable speed while allowing for a steady traffic flow. Use speed cushions to allow HGVs and emergency vehicles to proceed through without hindrance. A speed table will also serve a similar purpose but can also double as a pedestrian crossing in for larger environments.

Speed Cushions FAQ

Unlike speed bumps, speed cushions slow regular vehicle traffic but allow larger vehicles like ambulances & fire trucks to pass through easily. Road cushions are usually installed to leave gaps between each one, allowing emergency vehicles and HGVs to pass through without being affected by the bump. 

A modular road cushion can typically be installed in 2-3 hours. Once bolted down the cushion is ready to use immediately. 

Speed cushions will generally slow vehicle traffic to 25-30km/h. Speed cushions are less severe than speed bumps and allow for a better traffic flow in urban settings, especially where public transport and emergency vehicles are concerned.
