Thurrock Council

A-T-R were commissioned to carry out a site installation at two separate locations, the first location was along a section of highway along the A494 and required site specific information using innovative piezo sensors to collect motorcycle movements. The second location was on the eastbound and westbound section of the A55 near Llanfairfechan and this again required accurate classified data using innovative piezo sensors to collect classified data. The sensors provide accurate classified data when compared to loop based technology therefore this was our criteria when commissioning the work. A high level of customer service was given prior and during site installation and site specific safety requirements where adhered to ensuring the site installations. The installations where delivered to timescale especially the A55 near Llanfairfechan which required total lane closures for one night in each direction. Throughout the process for both commissions there was effective communication between A-T-R and myself, either by phone or by e-mail.
