Visiting Heathrow Airport Terminal 5, you can now find a futuristic scheme transporting visitors between terminals. This scheme consists of driverless cars operating on a track system around the airport site.
ATG Access were asked to supply and install two VP100, automatic bollards to the new Terminal 5 scheme which controls access to and from the ‘pod’ maintenance bays.
The traffic management system was installed for the safety and security of the workers within the maintenance bays just in case one of the pods ever became derailed or malfunctioned.
The scheme is very successful and works continuously throughout each busy day. This use of an automatic bollard system could well be the future of traffic management.
