Rotterdam City Council works with Compass to improve safety on the Coolsingel I

23 July 2014

Safety on the zebra crossings on the Coolsingel (one of Rotterdam’s main thoroughfares) has been an issue for some time.  The number of accidents on and near the pedestrian crossings has to be reduced so Rotterdam City Council looked for a way to get motorists to pay more attention to pedestrians.

Compass is now in full swing preparing for this work.  The ten zebra crossings will be fitted with signs with LED lighting.  When a pedestrian wants to cross the signs will light up and flash, more lights on the road surface will flash at the same time.  This project amalgamates a number of the best systems, such as LED lighting and detection cameras.


Last week the system was tested (the so-called FAT testing, or Factory Acceptance Test).  The Council and Compass tested the system at a quiet crossing to ensure it met specifications.  This testing was done to minimise future delays on the Coolsingel.
