Lindsay demonstrates flexible Road Zipper barrier system
First publishedin ITS World Congress
During the 2015 ITS World Congress, Lindsay Transportation Solutions will be demonstrating the integration of a Road Zipper barrier transfer machine, a representative amount of a concrete reactive tension barrier, as well as a Swiftgate system from Versilis (Montreal, Canada) and some traffic control signals and Green Way Systems (Frankfurt, Germany).
The Road Zipper System is designed to create a flexible, positive traffic barrier between opposing lanes of traffic, or between motorists and construction work zones while dynamically managing congestion. The system can create additional work zone space for construction crews, and provides more lanes to the peak traffic direction to mitigate congestion and accelerate the construction process.
Combined with advanced vehicle detection, software-enabled variable message signs and safety gates to redirect traffic, the system can be implemented, in real-time, to make available additional safe lanes as traffic volume approaching the work zone increases or decreases.
Visitors will see the active transfer of the barrier throughout the exhibit.
