AGD Pushbuttons – Sharjah RTA
The R1111 is a busy roadway located in the heart of Sharjah. Along the R1111, there are a number of unsignalized roundabouts which limit priority to pedestrians, impact the safety of pedestrians and motorists, and in general reduce the optimized flow of traffic in the area.
The local transport authority, Sharjah Roads and Transport Authority, sought to convert a number of these roundabouts to signal controlled intersections, along with introducing additional stand-alone pedestrian crossings to improve pedestrian safety. It was important that the installation utilized best in class, proven technology, that would stand the test of time and exceed client expectations.
TraffeXcel were appointed to supply, install and maintain traffic signal infrastructure of behalf of Sharjah RTA for the upgrade works. The project entailed converting two non-signalized roundabouts to signal-controlled intersections along with delivering 2 stand-alone pedestrian crossings, all requiring proven pushbutton devices.
A number of pushbutton devices were evaluated, and the AGD924 LED wait indicator was chosen as the approved pushbutton for the project, with a total of 40 devices procured across the 4 locations. The ease of installation & maintenance, long life high intensity LED’s; and proven reliability were key to obtaining client approval.
