Traffic & Access Solutions is pleased to announce that the New Zealand Transport Agency (NZTA) has approved the use of PORTABOOM® on all New Zealand Roads. As of today, operators, traffic controllers, contract workers and all New Zealanders will benefit by the enhanced safety that the PORTABOOM® system of work provides.
PORTABOOM® is a device that facilitates the safe integration of mobile people and moving vehicles. PORTABOOM® effectively enhances safety across a variety of applications including:
PORTABOOM® is a patented portable boom gate. Operated by remote control, PORTABOOM® allows the operator to stand in a safe zone, removing them from the direct line of traffic. Unlike portable traffic lights, using PORTABOOM® provides a physical barrier, protecting worksites.
Robert Cazzolli, Director Traffic & Access Solutions commented “We are thrilled that our New Zealand neighbours are able to experience the same safety benefits using the PORTABOOM® system of work as we have accomplished in Australia. Using PORTABOOM® allows the operator to stand on a footpath, in a safe zone, rather than on the road and in harms way. The approval to use PORTABOOM® in New Zealand allows us to continue our mission to improve safety through Safe Smart Worksites.”
