Traffic Tech Group Bags the Award for Infrastructure Project for Improving Road Safety at the 2011 Gulf Traffic Awards

14 December 2011

The Traffic Tech Group’s Salwa Truck Weigh Stations Project wins the Infrastructure Project for Improving Road Safety Award in the recently concluded Gulf Traffic 2011 Awards in Dubai.

Traffic Tech designed, built, and to date operates six complete truck weigh stations as part of the Salwa Highway’s Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) project, a road that links Doha to the Saudi border. The truck weigh stations aim to increase traffic safety and reduce road maintenance cost through prevention of accidents and road damage caused by overloaded vehicles. During the construction of the fixed weigh stations, Traffic Tech also operated portable/mobile enforcement scales in cooperation with the Qatar Police to enforce legal truck weights, and start educating truck drivers and owners on the importance of adhering to the legal limits. Overall, the project realized the drop of over-weight violations from over 83% in 2007 to less than 1% by December 2011.

“We are delighted to receive the Gulf Traffic’s road safety award this year”. “This and other awards that we have received are a culmination of our unending efforts in innovating integrated systems that promote safety for all road users”, says Mr. Husam Musharbash, president & CEO of the Traffic Tech Group. “We dedicate this award to the Qatar Public Works Authority (PWA) for giving us the opportunity to provide our design/build/operate services for this important project that helped preserve the road infrastructure and promote traffic safety”.

The PWA has contracted Traffic Tech to build 16 more Truck Weigh Stations throughout Qatar, five of which are currently under construction on North Road. A separate contract was carried out for one truck weigh station on Dukhan Highway. In total, Traffic Tech has succeeded in securing 3 contracts for a total of 23 truck weigh stations that will upon completion, constitute a national truck weight enforcement system.

In a press release issued by the organizers of the Gulf Traffic Awards, Mr. Anthony Pearce, one of the distinguished judges of the awards was quoted, “improvements in road safety are crucial and the awards recognize the most important contributions in terms of infrastructure projects, vehicle innovation, and changing driver behavior”.

It is noteworthy to highlight that this is the second time in row that Traffic Tech wins this prestigious award, the first was in 2009 for Innovation in Traffic Management. On top of this year’s award, the company has also been Highly Commended for the Innovation in Parking Award category and was shortlisted for two other nominated projects.
