Traffic management measures improve the flow of vehicles through a given area. When considering the subject of traffic management, designers and planners need to think about a variety of factors.
Restricted lanes with an active bollard system in place need to be clearly marked for both authorised and unauthorised vehicles. The bollards themselves need to have reflective strips to heighten their visibility especially at night. Considerations need to be placed on signage, visual lane separation and also a contingency plan for vehicles who have approached the restricted area and been denied access.
Active bollards should not normally be sited close to or at a signaled junction or pedestrian junction.
Do vehicles need access to the restricted zone in some instances? If so then how will the vehicles travel through the system, at speed or are they able to slow down whilst approaching the system? How many operations per hour and per day does the system need to achieve?
Once the system is in place, it should be monitored on a daily basis with regular/planned service and maintenance visits. Remote Fault Monitoring allows you to keep track of your systems whilst off site. The software will alert you to system faults immediately.
