Bus corridors are an initiative to give dedicated road space and traffic signal priority to buses in order to reduce journey times and improve service consistency. Automatic bollards can be utilised to prevent car traffic from traveling in bus lanes. Authorised buses and taxis are issued with electronic tags to lower the bollards. They can also designate pedestrian areas by blocking vehicular access while allowing pedestrians and cyclists to enter freely between each bollard. Bollards enforce and manage traffic flow 24 hours a day.
For situations where frequent, selective access control is required:
A fully automatic, retractable bollard can be utilised for Service Providers such as electrical power, water or telephone and compressed air connections. These can be installed in small-area, densely populated spaces such as town squares, camping grounds, arenas or markets. As the automatic bollards are underground, the sockets are fully protected and concealed. Access is provided by a key and an automatic release due to a single-acting gas actuator.
