Chevron and Traffic Group Signals are pleased to announce the first ever deployment of a battery-powered, radio-linked Temporary Traffic Signal that conforms to TSRGD Diagram 3000.
Installed in October, Chevron deployed Metro at J27 of the M5 Motorway, with support from our service division. The setup took just a few short hours to complete under a partial road closure, and the feature-rich Metro allowed the configuration and communications to be fully tested from the master with the signal lamps turned off, so as not to impact road users.
Metro is a fully wireless, Temporary Traffic Signal system. The high quality batteries provide up to 6 weeks of battery life, achieved through innovative components that have been engineered to deliver optimum performance with minimal power consumption.
Radio-linking between signals is enhanced by our Active Channel Management technology, which ensures reliable communications between units without the risk of disruption, vital for the location of the J27 site.

Packed with Technology
The deployment benefits from AutoGreen and Active Channel Management technologies, provided efficient traffic management and robust communications between the signal units. Since the site went live, the signals have performed flawlessly, enabling traffic to flow seamlessly through the works.
The scheme was designed in advance using our bespoke Metro Scheme Tool desktop software, which enabled us to run a full simulation of the signal configuration prior to launch. It took just moments for the scheme to be programmed into the controller, minimising installation times.
Metro is the only wireless Temporary Traffic Signal that conforms to TSRGD Diagram 3000, making it a most suitable option where permanent signals are being replaced. In this instance, works are being performed on a motorway bridge situated at the junction, requiring temporary traffic management for the 3 month duration of the project, placing the permanent signals out of service.
