Paul Penna and Tabitha Mitchell from Redflex
Redflex Traffic Systems in undertaking a major launch of a new generation of traffic enforcement products at Intertraffic, and also celebrating two milestone achievements.
The company has announced that they are one of two companies recently awarded a contract for Highways Agency Digital Enforcement & Compliance Systems Version 3 (HADECS 3). The contract covers design, development, prototyping and approval of outstation equipment and in-station equipment. This work has been allocated under the Highways Agency framework to supply speed enforcement equipment to road schemes.
Meanwhile, in Malaysia, Redflex has won a US$50 million enforcement contract for the supply of camera systems, back office software and related services for Malysia’s automated enforcement system (AES) project. Beta Tegap Sdn Bhd, the Redflex distributor in Malaysia, has signed a build, own, operate and transfer contract with the Malaysian Government, which is subject to finance, for the area throughout central and south Malaysia, encompassing the main corridor between Kuala Lumpur and Johor Bahru. The award of this contract comes after extensive competitive trials run by the Malaysian Ministry of Transport.
Launching here at Intertraffic, the Redflex NK7 suite of products, developed in-house by the company, focused on issues that can be encountered through the use of traditional radars in built up areas. Redflex claims the resulting system eliminates reflectivity issues, providing a far greater level of accuracy and flexibility in enforcement than traditional radar and laser. The NK7 dual radar enables determination of both the vehicle speed and specific lane.
To accompany this advancement in radar technology, Redflex has created a slimline enclosure that’s less intrusive on the streetscape. The option for patterned etching on its exterior gives the system a contemporary look whilst the ballistic rated stainless steel ensures is able to withstand extreme climate conditions.
