Traffic Administration Crew
Besides the introduction of ITS, daily patrol activity is essential in order to operate Hanshin Expressway Network smoothly. Well-trained traffic administration crews ride on our yellow patrol cars and patrol expressway frequently. They process traffic accident with police officers and collect debris on the road. Also, they can fill out potholes on road surface. Sophisticated expressway service is realized by these professional activities and customers' inconvenience is always kept at the minimum.
Prevention of Vehicle Overload
In recent years, freight vehicles have been getting larger in size, and some of them are suspected to be illegally loaded. Overloaded vehicles endanger traffic safety and structural healthiness of the roads. Furthermore, they could cause noise and vibration which cause discomfort for roadside residents. In order to cope with the matter, our company carries out countermeasures aiming to the crackdown of overloaded vehicles in cooperation with police officers.
In addition, with the wide use of ETC, vehicles have become to pass thorough the toll plaza at high speed. Therefore, the Hanshin Expressway develops "High-precision Automatic Axle Weighing System" and has begun to install such systems in toll plazas.
