OVER HEIGHT SURVEYS

Heavy overheight traffic vehicle may cause damage to bridges and other infrastructure

Over Height Surveys

Over height Vehicle Detection Systems (OVDS) are becoming more important in today's world of traffic and transport design.

Height Detection
TCS for Surveys has experience in detecting over height vehicles to assist in the planning and development of over traffic and road infrastructure (bridges, overpasses, signage). A common traffic survey TCS undertakes is the movement of over height vehicles via residential streets.
Increasing Heights of Vehicles
There are more trucks on the road, and more traffic 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.
