Safety U-turn


In certain situations of emergency, emergency vehicles have to reverse the direction of travel immediately.


By opening the highway emergency gate barrier, a calamity passage allows a highway U-turn for emergency vehicles. Not only forms the CADO an exit for emergency vehicles, it is also used to U-turn traffic in the event of blocked road sections.

Road works and accidents on motorways require motorway management authorities to have an effective and efficient plan of approach. If highway traffic lanes or tunnel tubes need to be sealed off, the safety of road users, traffic directors and emergency services must be guaranteed. SPIE provides innovative traffic management solutions that provide added safety for road users and maintenance staff, and help ensure the consistency of traffic flows in a swift way.
