We take home the Highways Magazine Excellence Award for Technology 

We were delighted to be awarded the Highways Magazine Excellence award for Most Innovative Use of Technology in the Dartford River Crossing System.  This system involved a wide array of technologies which had rarely been combined together.  Several of them including our Dangerous Goods Vehicle Detector were completely new.  

The system designed and built to meet our customer's high level functional design entirely in-house.  Its high reliability architecture includes multiple redundancy in the sensors, barriers, traffic signals and the overall Control System and software. The system was thoroughly tested in a replicated 1:1 scale simulation on an airfield for several months before it was transferred to Dartford.  The system was trialled with a variety of different road users and many different vehicles to fully understand and then improve the system to meet driver's perceptions and expectations.  Since go-live the system worked faultlessly.
