Swarco’s sophisticated signalling system
Swarco's sophisticated signalling system has achieved acceptance for use on Netherland's motorways (pictured, Harry Minnema from Rijkswaterstaat, Michael Schuch VP Swarco, Freek van der Valk – MD Swarco Netherlands, Mørten Søndergaard – MD Swarco Denmark)
The highly sophisticated control and signalling system developed by Swarco is now homologated to meet the tough Rijkswaterstaat WKS 1.3 specification for use on highways in the Netherlands. The requirements of this specification have been in place since January 2013 for use with regard to motorway signalling systems and roadside equipment.

The system now offers dynamic maximum speed limit capabilities and is suited to remote management. The aim of the tough Rijkswaterstaat specification has been to provide a higher level of support for users and also minimise traffic disturbance, as configuration changes can be made remotely rather than onsite. The tough SCB homologation procedure is mandatory for any contracts being awarded by the Rijkswaterstaat. To meet the requirements, Swarco says it had to file every requirement, the definition of the test, the test to test the requirement and the outcome of the test.

Swarco complied with no less than 1,029 requirements at the Delft Test Centre. To verify the integration in the whole system architecture into a running package, according to the firm. To improve efficiency Swarco has established a database to manage the SCB process. As a result, the firm is now capable of offering a complete motorway signalling system with its own products, as well as including engineering, commissioning and long term maintenance.
