UK’s Astucia launches solar powered road delineation at Gulf Traffic
England-based Astucia (UK) Ltd, one of 100 exhibitors to participate at October's Gulf Traffic event in Dubai, says international experience shows that latest road delineation technology can help curb the region's road accidents.
In one of Malaysia's major expressways, there has been a 40 percent reduction in accidents over the past six months, as a result of the installation of solar powered Intelligent Road Studs that operate from dusk to dawn and could last up to 20 days on a single charge, said Ilyas Sharif, Astucia’s director.
Road safety will be a key issue at Gulf Traffic, the region's major vertical conference and exhibition (Confex) for the traffic and transport industry.
At Gulf Traffic, Astucia will launch into the Middle East its Intelligent Road Studs, including an emergency and hazard warning light system for motorists as a direct replacement for conventional warning triangles. At Gulf Traffic, Astucia want to meet with local transport and traffic consulting engineers, police officials, potential distributors or agents, according to a company press release.
The sold-out event has also received exhibitor confirmations from as far as the USA and New Zealand, Europe, the Middle East and the Far East. Some 350 Middle East and international delegates from the transport sector are also expected to attend a multi-speaker conference which will have three distinctive segments dedicated to mass transit, with particular emphasis on Mass Transit, Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) and Urban Planning.
Gulf Traffic 2002 has embarked on a visitor marketing campaign targeting the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC), Lebanon, Jordan, Syria, Yemen, Iran as well as India and Pakistan. Government departments encompassing traffic police, transport and public works ministries will be the focus of the campaign, which will also include urban planners, network developers, component suppliers and specifiers. — (menareport.com)
