Case Study – Temporary CCTV keeps traffic flowing on England’s motorways

Challenge

When a stretch of motorway undergoes roadworks, it often means that there are no emergency telephones as a result of the hard shoulder being used as a ‘running lane’. The result is motorists have nowhere to stop safely and summon assistance in the event of a breakdown or accident. That is where P&D CCTV systems come in, offering a real-time overview of the entire stretch of works. Pelco day/night Esprit PTZ cameras with wipers are spaced at 500m intervals and linked back to a manned 24/7 on-site control cabin.
The cameras are mounted on 10m wind-down poles, allowing for easy maintenance without the need for cherry pickers. Fibre-optic cables are used to cope with the long distances involved – up to 17km in some cases.
