Mobile Intelligent Transport Systems solutions manufacturer and supplier SRL has expanded its hire portfolio with the launch of a series of new products designed to enable customers to increase the protection of workers while cost-effectively promoting the safe and efficient flow of traffic around roadworks.
The Remotely Operated Stop Go (ROSGO) System and Euro Remote Control (ERC) will be launched this spring, along with SRL’s enhanced Urban64TM intelligent traffic signal control system.
The portable wireless ROSGO is the company’s first remotely operated stop/go sign, designed to safeguard the workforce in scenarios where such a solution is required. It is the only product on the market that may be easily and cost-effectively deployed and operated by a single person from a location of safety up to 200m away; its 24kg base is the lightest available and facilitates a one-man lift.
The 900mm diameter signs may be used as part of an integrated system comprising up to four units, making it the only solution capable of managing four-way stop/go sites. Featuring lithium as opposed to lead acid batteries, it is also the first product that may be conveniently recharged using an in-vehicle charger. One button enables the user to coordinate multiple signs, automatically precluding green conflicts.
The new hand-held Euro Remote Control allows safer, long-distance control of SRL’s Eurolight portable traffic signals for settings including those experiencing high volume peak time traffic flow. The new device also facilitates the easy management of more exceptional scenarios – such as those involving waterways, train crossings or slow-moving vehicles – that standard traffic light settings would not be able to accommodate.
SRL says it is the only device on the market to feature feedback LEDs, confirming phase settings from a 300m distance, allowing the user an unparalleled degree of control. The unit facilitates the management of manual mode and all-red setting and is rechargeable via USB-C.
The company’s Urban64TM intelligent temporary traffic control system for the coordination of multi-directional flows of traffic and pedestrians has been enhanced with the introduction of an extendable pole on which the signals are mounted. Previously constructed on site, lights incorporating the new structure are built off-site, before being transported to their destination, where the poles are swiftly extended to full height.
SRL estimates that the new units may be cost-effectively installed up to 30% more quickly than the originals, reducing the amount of time for which customers are required to manage traffic while the solution is established, minimising road user disruption and promoting road worker safety.
It says Urban64TM is the only temporary traffic light solution to feature the same microprocessor optimised vehicle actuation (MOVA) technology as permanent solutions, and signals were originally mounted on solid concrete bases. These have now been replaced by new ones featuring a concrete filled steel box on four adjustable legs. The legs allow the units to be quickly and easily stabilised, however uneven the deployment surface is.
The company has won RoSPA (Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents) awards for the last three consecutive years, including the 2023 Gold award, in recognition of its health and safety achievements. It is also ISO 45001 certified for occupational health and safety.
CEO Adrian Murphy said: “SRL is committed to ongoing product innovation to help promote the safety of road workers, while facilitating the cost-effective operation of efficient traffic management projects. Our new and enhanced solutions are testament to this dedication.”
