Transport Support has just completed a project to supply a fully automatic radar controlled traffic light system for a road crossing on one of the UK’s largest quarrying sites.
The system consists of a number of traffic light/sign boards similar to those found at level crossings on train lines positioned on the approach to a busy road junction. The lights are controlled by doppler radar units which sense oncoming heavy quarry vehicles and turn all the lights to red. This prevents smaller vehicles crossing in front of heavy CAT777 size dump trucks.
The system was designed, manufactured and installed by transport support and is one of our latest bespoke traffic control systems.
Transport Support has become recognised as one of the market leaders in the field of tipper vehicle safety and currently supplies the TS Inclinometer and overhead high voltage cable detector (HVDS) to most of the UK’s aggregate producers and haulers. The TS High Voltage Detection System can detect the presence of overhead high voltage power lines and alert the operator raising the tipper body. Click here for further information on how the HVDS can protect against a high voltage line strike.
Welcome to the new Transport Support website, we hope you like the look of it. The old website was starting to get a bit dated and was not the easiest to navigate (it was over 5 years old). The new site much easier to get round and now combines the online store with the products section. All you need to do is register as a customer and login. Existing account customers and distributors can also take advantage of online ordering, please contact our sales department for further details. Other features include a full technical download section where you can view all of our Installation and Instruction guides.
