A453, Nottingham – September 2015
Induction loops are found almost everywhere, and most of us will likely travel over dozens of them daily without even realising…. even though they generally make our lives easier as commuters, and safer as pedestrians.
An induction loop is a metallic cable hidden in the road surface to act as a sensor. When it detects a vehicle passing over it, a signal is generated and something in the immediate area is triggered as a result.
For example, car park barriers, traffic light & pedestrian crossing management and speed detection etc.
You can identify their presence as a black bitumen square or chevron shape immediately in front of whatever they are controlling.
UK Diamond Drilling Ltd install, remove, replace and maintain induction loop systems across the UK and employ specifically trained operatives.
If you would like any further information please call us to discuss your individual needs.
Above is a recent project carried out for a valued client on the A45 outside Birmingham Airport. Over a period of 2 days and night shifts we installed traffic management loop systems leading up to a pedestrian crossing on both lanes of the dual carriageway, in both directions.
