You can improve the flow of traffic within a city centre by forcing vehicles to follow a planned route. This can be altered depending on the time of day.
You can safeguard wandering pedestrians or wayward cyclists by completely excluding vehicles from areas which can be marked as pedestrian or cyclist only zones.
Using traffic bollards has proven to reduce vehicles accessing restricted zones by 78%. Minimise traffic delays and emissions by over 18%. Most importantly also reducing pedestrian deaths within city centre zones.
You can even successfully segregate bus lanes and restrict impatient drivers from swerving into clearly marked bus routes.
Nothing is installed within a UK public highway and left to chance. ATG worked closely with the Highways Agency when engineering traffic management bollards. As a result, systems available from ATG are Department of Transport Approved.
To understand how bollard systems can work with existing measures such as traffic lights or ANPR. And can help you achieve a traffic management objective. Contact us. We would like to help.
