SPIE VEVA Movable Barrier - Solutions
Peak/rush hour (Reverse flow)
During rush hours in the morning and early evening, a problem many motorways have to cope with is that they can hardly bear the heavy traffic. The tidal flow of traffic creates congestion on the highway and disadvantages of traffic jams arise subsequently. To continue construction of additional traffic lanes is simply not a solution since eventually one will run out of space and funds.
Instead, the VEVA provides a more efficient, cost saving and preventive road solution to reduce traffic congestion on the motorway. By moving the VEVA crash rated movable highway barrier, redundant traffic lanes can be utilized as an extra lane for the contra traffic flow. In fact reversible lanes are created. When closed, the VEVA blocks access to the reverse lane. This system prevents ghost-riding while maximizing the highway capacity.
