A revolutionary new manhole cover is to be piloted over the coming weeks on the famous North West 200 course as an answer to the currently used covers which can be uneven and slippery. In collaboration with the Vauxhall International North West 200 team and Tuftac Highway and Drainage, Northern Ireland Water will switch two traditional manhole covers in carefully selected areas of the course for new Tuftac non-skid adaptable manhole covers.
