Do they actually offer any benefits other than additional employment?
I just crawled through one on my way to work.
4 people on site.
one sitting in a deckchair operating the traffic lights at one end
one driving the buggy
one digging a hole
one sitting in a deckchair operating the traffic lights at the other end.

traffic flow? What price can you put on making sure Jonty’s Range Rover Evoque gets to Thurlestone in good time for hisPosted 4 years ago
golferr meeting? Difficult for traffic lights even with sensors on to tell if there is one car on one side and 15 on the other and time the lights right.ioloMember

They were probably priced into a job 5 years ago so are basically free.
Would you pay to hire traffic lights? They are ridiculously expensive if you can get away without.
That gang probably work together on various jobs, not just the one you saw as they all probably live in the same village and all have specialist abilities. Kerb laying/tarring/pipe laying/block paving etc.
Each man you saw was working so I don’t really see what your issue with this is.
The contractor has priced this work and I can assure you in this current economic climate, money is being wasted on this type of work. The profits are so low many are working at cost just to keep their men in work.
Convoys are a necessary evil to stop granny driving into the hole and try and claim the cones did not conform to section 8 of the road traffic act.
