June 2017 – Luas Cross City – Live Tram Testing

On June 17th live tram testing began on Dublin’s new Luas Cross City tram line. The project, aptly named, Luas Cross City, is the next phase of Dublin’s integrated light rail network.  Luas Cross City will extend the existing Luas Green Line from St. Stephen’s Green West to the Iarnród Éireann Broombridge Station in Cabra. Transport Infrastructure Ireland (TII) is delivering the project with funding being provided by the National Transport Authority. The project is being undertaken in close collaboration with Dublin City Council who are the administrative body responsible for Dublin City. The cost of this project is €368 million and it's one of the largest capital investment projects being undertaken by the government at the moment. It's the extension of the Luas Green line creating an interchange with the red line. There will be 13 new stops with 8 of these in the core city centre area. Civic, along with their partners ATC, supplied 25 no. ATSC4 VC6 controllers to manage the traffic and tram movements through all of the critical signalised junctions. VC6 is the latest generation of the ATSC4 SCATS compatible controller and is currently the preferred signal controller in Australia with over 4000 units in operation across Singapore, New Zealand, USA, Ireland, Australia, China and the Middle East to name a few. Pictured here is Bob Lemon (ATC) and Ken Glover (Civic) on the morning of the test.

April 2017 – The ATSC4 VC6 chosen for the Luas Cross City project

In April 2017, the ATSC4 VC6 SCATS traffic signal controller was selected by Dublin City Council to manage the traffic and tram movements through its key critical intersections across the Luas Cross City project. Civic Group built and delivered twenty ATSC4 VC6 controllers as part of the junction upgrade works. The ATSC4 VC6 offers greater flexibility, allows for more individual loops, more special purpose inputs and outputs and Increased programming functionality for the designer and operator of the junctions. SCATS® Version 6.9.3 already fully supports VC6 Controllers. Therefore, it makes basic sense that any new specification for Traffic Signal Controllers requires the TRAFF® version to be VC6 and not the older, outdated VC5 as this limits the size of the intersection that can be controlled. VC6 allows a SCATS® user to buy traffic signal controllers that can handle larger intersection configurations and has greater flexibility. The ATSC4 has been developed to be compliant to the latest RMS Specification TSC/4 Including Amendment 1 and Amendment 2 with Amendment 3 developed and currently being tested. For more information on this and any of our Smart City products please contact Ken Glover on +353 1 4019914 or ken@civic.ie.

The world famous Sydney Harbour Bridge chooses EzyLoops

For the first time in the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge’s 79 year History, the bridge was closed for re-surfacing for two weekends in January 2012. Roads and Maritime NSW (RMS) needed a company with a proven track record of supplying reliable products, to install vehicle sensors during the resurfacing process and turned to Traffic Tech to achieve this. The sub-surface EzyLoops are used to monitor traffic flow on the bridge, collecting data about vehicle speeds, traffic volume and vehicle classification. This data is used by various groups within and external to RMS to make infrastructure planning decisions for the future. The loops themselves also work in conjunction with the SCATS* system to monitor direction of contraflow traffic as the lane directions can be configured depending on desired traffic flow. The weather wasn’t kind to the workers with heavy rain falling during both weekends of resurfacing, but they worked through day and night and managed to complete the job in 2 weekends, right on schedule.

Luas Green Line - Dundrum Sub Station Flooding

During the heavy rains of 24th October the sub station of Dundrum Stop on the Luas Green Line was flooded. As a result all Green Line trams were suspended.

Civic dispatched one of its two 10 tonne capacity Kroll Vacuum Tankers to begin removing the water from the sub station while a separate team of track trained technicians were sent to begin cabling works to isolate Dundrum Sub Station from the Green Line infrastructure and allow the line to re-open. All 750 volt feeders and inter-tripping cables were redirected during this day long process. When complete the line was tested and full tram service was resumed for the following morning. Team work played a major role in the success of that day. Well done to all who were on site.

Dundrum Town Centre - October Floods

On Tuesday 25th October our facilities support service division dispatched a team of mobile engineers to Dundrum Town Centre responding to calls from H&M, Zara, Massimo Dutti and Ernst Jones. All four stores had experienced severe flooding which left the stores being unable to trade. Our team quickly assessed the damage and put into effect our "Store Disaster Recovery Plan". This is a plan that is routinely practiced by our operations team in Head Office to ensure our clients experience a minimum loss of trading hours should they have a major disaster within one or more of their stores. Civic dispatched personnel to deal with the store managers and liaised with insurance assessors. Once the stores had been fully electrically assessed by our electricians, the power was returned and the lights switched back on. The clean-up team then began removing all water damaged items i.e. carpets, wooden floors etc... and installing industrial strength dehumidifiers to help with the drying process. All stores were able to reopen for business the following morning. We would like to thank all of our clients for their patience and continued support during that challenging 24 hour period.

Intertraffic 2010

 

March 2010 witnessed the return of Intertraffic, Amsterdam. Civic Group shared a stand with our long time partners Traffic Tech Pty Ltd and also seen the beginning of a new partnership with Traffic Innovations Pty Ltd. Traffic Innovations is an Australian based company that develops Innovative Technology Solutions for Intelligent Transportation Systems. The show seen the launch of their i-Stud Vehicle Detector and i-Stud Wireless Train Detector both of which have been designed and developed from the ground up by the guys at Traffic Innovations

 

At the core of the iStud Wired product range are sensors and in road warning lights that can be connected to a 2 wire common cable for receiving power and data. The iStud Vehicle Detector uses Innovative Technology to replace the traditional inductive loop.

 

A magnetic sensor is used to detect vehicle presence, speed and classification. This data is transmitted back in real time to a Line Interface Card (LIC) that can be used to activate a traffic light controller or forwarded on to a monitoring centre for traffic analysis. The advantage of an iStud Vehicle detector system over any other detector or loop system is the additional data that is collected, reduced installation costs and significantly reduced damage to the pavement. The iStud Wireless Rail Level Crossing System is a low cost, low power, fail safe, remotely monitored, wireless solution that includes, an intelligent track side rail stud, wireless warning system (solar powered), vehicle detector and In Road Warning Lights. The detector uses trackside mounted sensors to detect the presence of trains and has a minimum operational life of 10 years.

The iStud Wireless Train detector simplifies installation of trackside train detectors by eliminating cabling and trenching, significantly reducing installation and maintenance costs. Unique to the iStud warning system is an advanced warning to the train driver that the level crossing has been activated or a vehicle has not cleared the level crossing.

Information on all of the above is available on the Highways Support Services section of our website.

The show was a great success and has generated a lot of interest in both our existing and new product range. We would like to thank all of you who took the time to visit our stand and look forward to doing business with you in the future.

Intertraffic Amsterdam 2008

 

Traffic Tech has expanded its presence into Europe with the launch of the NEW Tactile Switch Pad (TSP) at Intertraffic Amsterdam 2008. Over 1,000 people visited the stand and most were impressed and interested in the new method of pedestrian detection.

 

The new Switch Pads are available in a number of configurations and surface finishes and have the ability to detect various traffic types, from detecting the presents of a pedestrian waiting at a Pedestrian-crossing through to being able to detect the direction that a bicycle is travelling on a priority bicycle lane. The cost of a switch pad, including the Nortech controller, (providing directional detection) will be far less than that of a traditional Infra Red or Video detectors.

 

Accor SA in France has, until now, been the only European distributor of Traffic Tech's products and has been using the EzyLoops Systems pre-formed Surface-mounted vehicle detection loops in car-park installations since 2004 with great success. The new switch pads will provide car park customers with a non-invasive and cost effective alternative to the installation of (2 saw-cut loops + duel channel detector) for directional counting and boom-gate operations. Sales of the Tactile Switch Pads in Europe are set to multiply with distribution agreements ready to be signed in Holland , Spain and Germany.

Civic Group (Ireland) and Lochwynd (UK and Dubai) were co-exhibitors at Intertraffic and have now come on line with the manufacture of the EzyLoops Systems, Sub-surface loops and are also the exclusive distributors of the Pedestrian, Bicycle and Vehicle switch pads.

Sales of EzyLoops systems, Sub-surface loops and of the new switch pads is set to far exceed sales forecasts in the first year in the UK and Ireland . Trial installations of the loops are already planned and both companies are working together to obtain "type approval" for EzyLoops.
