Traffic Engineering Equipment

- further categories

Traffic engineering equipment is an essential part of transportation infrastructure that is designed to manage the movement of people and goods on roads, highways, and other transportation networks. Among the most important traffic engineering equipment are traffic lights, cones, and signals, as well as road signals, battery-operated road signals, traffic diversion lights, and plastic traffic cones.

Why do we need traffic engineering equipements?

Road renovation, maintenance or construction often requires a wide range of traffic engineering equipment to ensure that the traffic generated during the works is properly constructed in accordance with road safety regulations.

On roads, motorways, police measures, disaster prevention and accident prevention, traffic engineering equipment may also be needed to divert or close traffic. The selection and installation of these devices should take into account the relevant standards and regulations, which should take into account the safety of all road users. It is of paramount importance that traffic engineering devices are visible at night and stand out from the daytime environment, so that they are conspicuous on other dangerous road sections (e.g. pedestrian crossings, busy intersections at schools, residential areas) to ensure that they are detected as soon as possible. Its use is authorised by the competent local authority.

Types of traffic engineering devices

Traffic engineering devices for road traffic can be of different types according to the user's needs, for example:

  • beacons (installed and hand-held), signal buoys
  • diversion buoys, diversion lights
  • message signs
  • portable traffic lights and signs
  • traffic diversion trailers, vehicle-mounted diversion arrows, diversion line lights
  • reflective tapes and foils.

The larger the area to be controlled in terms of traffic, the more it is advisable to choose automated and easy-to-use devices for this task. Another selection criterion is whether we are thinking of a mobile device (e.g. hand-held beacon, cone, portable traffic light) or a vehicle-mounted traffic engineering device. Traffic engineering equipment is typically equipped with high-power batteries to ensure uninterrupted operation.

Traffic light

Traffic lights are one of the most visible examples of traffic engineering equipment. They are used at intersections to regulate the flow of traffic and ensure that vehicles and pedestrians can cross the intersection safely. The traffic lights use a system of red, amber and green lights to indicate when vehicles and pedestrians should stop, slow down or proceed through the intersection. Traffic lights are key to preventing accidents and managing traffic flow.

Traffic diversion cones

Plastic traffic diversion cones are a basic type of traffic engineering equipment. They are lightweight and durable and can be used to create temporary barriers and divert traffic around hazards. Plastic traffic cones are easy to transport and can be quickly set up in a variety of situations, making them an indispensable tool for traffic engineers and road construction crews.

Traffic signal lights

Traffic signal lights are a type of traffic engineering equipment used to indicate when traffic needs to be diverted due to road works or other hazards. They are usually placed at the entrance to a road or motorway and provide drivers with important information about the traffic conditions ahead. Traffic lights can be essential in preventing accidents and ensuring that traffic can safely avoid hazards.

Battery-powered beacons

A battery-powered traffic signal is a type of traffic engineering equipment commonly used in areas where there is no access to electricity. These signals are battery operated and can be used in areas where there is no power source. Battery-powered traffic signals are essential to ensure that traffic signals function properly and provide important information to drivers and pedestrians.
