Flannery Plant Hire are happy to be in support of the Direct Vision Standard, which makes the streets of London safer of pedestrians and cyclists since its design in October 2019.

The Direct Vision Standard measures how much an HGV driver can see directly through their cab windows. This indicates the level of risk to vulnerable road users, such as people walking, cycling and motorcycling near the vehicle.

The Direct Vision Standard and HGV safety permit for HGVs is part of the Mayor of London’s Vision Zero plan to eliminate all deaths and serious injuries on London’s transport network.

The Flannery Plant Hire HGV fleet exceeds the Mayor’s requirements and we continue to raise the bar including our latest additions to the HGV fleet.
