In April A-one+ Area 12 deployed the Intellicone Safelane perimeter incurion system on a A180 road closure.
The system consisted of 1 full closure point, 1 checkpoint with CCTV & panic alarm and 1 contractor alarm was deployed overnight as a pre-works scheme, to allow the safe implementation of the daytime network traffic management, materials and plant.
The manned checkpoint was positioned to receive an alarm signal from the full closure point which was unmanned. During the incident outlined above the traffic management operatives at the manned checkpoint received notification of the attempted breach at the full closure point. They were able to rectify the traffic management and contain the situation without having to resort to alerting the workforce using their Intellicone panic alarm system.
In case the motorist would have gained access and posed a risk the traffic management operatives would have been able to alert the workforce.
‘On the East entry slip road, the Intellicone enabled cone lamps were moved by a motorist activating a local alarm which alerted a mannned checkpoint within the worksite. The local alarm acted as a deterrent and the motorist moved on without entering the site’
