INNOVATIVE ROAD MARKING MACHINES

This article describes the latest road marking machines and portable traffic signals developed by Techroad Dyco. The Rideliner was developed to fill the gap between a pedestrian and ride-on machine. It is a small articulated vehicle producing lines up to 600mm wide. The driver's seat is central. Small curves are possible including circles down to 300mm diameter. The Superliner is a larger version with an 800 litre tank. Details are given of the paint heating system and built-in safety equipment. Dyco's portable traffic signals are based on a unique split trailer system incorporating independent suspension. Operation of the system is outlined. A number of safety features are incorporated in case of failure. The system can be operated automatically, adjusting itself to the traffic flow recorded by a detector. A variety of batteries are available with solar, gasoline and diesel back-up systems. For the covering abstract see IRRD 866027.
