Over Height Surveys

Over Height Surveys

Overheight Vehicle Detection Systems (OVDS) are becoming more important in today's world of transport.

Increasing Heights of Vehicles

There are more trucks on the road, and more infrastructure which can be damaged by the ever increasing height of vehicles. Only a few years ago shipping container heights increased by 6 inches / 15 centimetres in order to satisfy the export/import market. This has a devastating effect on the movement of vehicles as they need to find alternate routes.

Height Detection

TCS for Surveys has experience in detecting over height vehicles to assist in the planning and development of over road infrastructure (bridges, overpasses, signage). A common survey TCS undertakes is the movement of over height vehicles via residential streets.
