Balfour Beatty Infrastructure Services

Background

Balfour Beatty is a leading international infrastructure group.

They provide the essential infrastructure assets societies need to function, develop and thrive.

With more than 100 years of experience in delivering highly complex infrastructure projects, Balfour Beatty knows how to operate with the highest levels of quality, safety and technical expertise, integrate with clients and local supply chains and work with local communities.

The Company operates principally in the UK and Ireland, the US and the Far East.

The Challenge

Balfour Beatty needed a system to enable area teams to monitor traffic and transport around national trunk roads.

Their solution would require multiple cameras to be placed along the road networks, and be able to provide real-time video for the operators to enable them to make sound judgements and advise on incidents as they occur.

The Solution

Wireless CCTV were contracted by Balfour Beatty to provide its redeployable CCTV cameras, allowing traffic and transport monitoring, covering several areas of the national trunk road network.

The WCCTV 4G IR Speed Dome delivers live and recorded high definition images via 4G mobile transmission.

As a truly all-in-one surveillance system, it combines an infrared PTZ camera, local recording capacity (up to 4TB) and wireless transmission technology into a single, lightweight unit.

The system is easy to install, easy to maintain, and can be moved to new locations to meet changing requirements.

Live and recorded footage can be accessed via 4G, 3G and Wi-Fi connectivity, allowing users to remotely view and download the video via smartphone, tablet, laptop or PC or via integration to an existing control room.

The Result

35 WCCTV 4G IR Speed Dome were deployed to 25 traffic hotspots along the road networks. The cameras were mounted on lighting columns, traffic signals and bridges to ensure optimum visibility at each location.

The cameras were simultaneously viewed from various remote control rooms and offices to ensure any incidents or traffic congestions were picked up and dealt with in minimal time to reduce disruption.

“Mobile CCTV provides the area teams with real-time images from major incidents occurring on the network. This enables quick response to problems on the network and should contribute towards easing congestion more rapidly than was previously possible.”
