TRAFFIC TECH BECOMES PART OF HISTORY!

For the first time in the iconic Sydney Habour Bridge’s 79 year History, the bridge was closed for re-surfacing for two weekends in January 2012. Roads and Maritime NSW (RMS) needed a company with a proven track record of supplying reliable products, to install vehicle sensors during the resurfacing process and turned to Traffic Tech to achieve this.

The sub-surface EzyLoops are used to monitor traffic flow on the bridge, collecting data about vehicle speeds, traffic volume and vehicle classification. This data is used by various groups within and external to RMS to make infrastructure planning decisions for the future.  The loops themselves also work in conjunction with the SCATS (Sydney Co-ordinated Adaptive Traffic System) system to monitor direction of contraflow traffic as the lane directions can be configured depending on desired traffic flow.

The weather wasn’t kind to the workers with heavy rain falling during both weekends of resurfacing, but they worked through day and night and managed to complete the job in 2 weekends, right on schedule. Below are some photos of the EzyLoop installation, thanks to Jay Ng Project Manager, Roads and Maritime NSW for taking the photos and giving us permission to use them.
