The Road Zipper System comes to Montreal

Lindsay Transportation Solutions (LTS), manufacturer of The Road Zipper System, is demonstrating why the company is the world leader in moveable barrier technology. Its booth focuses on moveable barrier solutions for construction and managed lanes applications while outside the exhibit hall, there is a live demonstration in two parts.

Part 1 focuses on automated lane closures featuring the SwiftGate system from Canadian manufacturer Versilis. The gates pivot from a stored position to the fully deployed lane closure configuration through a variety of wireless control options.

Part 2 features a real-time lane reconfiguration with positive barrier separation. When the lane closure is complete, the Road Zipper System mitigates traffic congestion by quickly reconfiguring the roadway under traffic and the positive protection of a concrete barrier provides safety that is not available with plastic delineation.

For construction, the Road Zipper is used to accelerate the construction process, mitigate traffic congestion, and provide the safety of positive barrier protection between workers and motorists.

For managed lanes, the Road Zipper reconfigures the roadway in real time to add more lanes to the peak direction, while eliminating crossover head-on accidents.

Visitors to Montreal can also see the Road Zipper in action in a real-world situation. There is a permanent Road Zipper system on the Louis-Bisson Bridge in Montreal. Part of the A13, the bridge was built in 1975 with 6 lanes. The moveable barrier was added to the bridge in 1992 to create a 4/2, 2/4 configuration. This effectively created an eight lane bridge using only 6 lanes.

LTS will also highlight a full line of high-performance crash cushions, end terminals and speciality barriers. The company’s road safety products division includes two of the most trusted brands in safety, Barrier Systems and Snoline. Together, they have been manufacturing road safety products engineered to meet NCHRP 350, MASH, and EN-1317 safety standards since 1955.
