Introducing the VP Traffic Management System

ATG Access has over 20 years of experience in delivering successful traffic management schemes across the world, becoming leaders in the field.

What started out as simplistic traffic management systems to provide priority access to buses and cyclists has now evolved to centre around public realm safety and security. Working on these projects we’ve learned a lot about what makes great traffic management solutions, and so we’ve made sure our VP Traffic System is one of the most versatile out there, giving you complete flexibility in how you want it to operate.

Read on to discover more about what makes our VP Traffic Bollard unique and what you need to consider when planning a traffic management scheme.

a
Signage

Fundamental when creating a successful traffic management scheme. It is very important to inform vehicles that a bollard system is in operation. Safe and clear operating instructions are required for the system users and will avoid system misuse. It is also recommended that all traffic management bollards are covered by a CCTV system.

b
Control Cabinet & System

VP Traffic Bollard systems are operated using hydraulics to raise and lower the physical bollard and a PLC control board to manage system inputs and outputs. This allows any method of access control to be integrated with the system, whether it be a rolling pin-code, an activation card, or ANPR. Anything is possible. The PLC control board and hydraulic pump are stored in a secure roadside cabinet. Cabinets can be provided which are force tested to the LCPB, LPS 1175 standard if required.

c
Safety Loops

As standard, three sets of safety loops are supplied with VP Traffic Management Systems. More can be supplied if the application requires it. Safety loops detect a vehicles journey through a live system and will operate in sequence with the interacting vehicle. Once a vehicle is detected as having passed through a system successfully, only then will the bollard move into the raised position.

d
Automatic Bollards

Whether you opt for the impact tested VP HD Bollard or the VP Traffic Bollard, both products are the same size (700mm above ground) and can be supplied in either a stainless steel or black sleeved finish. Lights can be incorporated also in some instances but would need a consultation with our Engineering Team. The VP HD impact tested solution can be retrofitted into historical VP Traffic foundations if this forms part of a refurbishment project.

e
Traffic Indicator Column

To be used in conjunction with safety signs and loops, traffic indicator columns are required as standard with automatic bollard systems with the option to include an audible warning. Indicator columns provide a clear signal to motorists when it is safe to proceed through the system and when they must wait – classic green and red indicator lamps provide this signal.

VP HD Bollard

Building on the success of the VP Traffic bollard system, the VP Heavy Duty Bollard takes traffic management & pedestrianisation a step further. This system has been designed and tested to arrest a 1,500kg vehicle travelling at 32kph (20mph).

The VP Heavy Duty Bollard can be installed as a new system or, can be retrofitted into an existing ATG Access traffic management system to upgrade the security of an area. Designed to provide security and peace of mind to traffic management applications.
