Science Site Automatic Bollards

(24 July 2020)

Over the last several months, Estates and Facilities has been working with Cam-tec, to upgrade and replace the 3no automatic rising bollards and associated controls located on Lower Mountjoy.

The new automatic rising bollards are now ready for use, however before they are raised and brought back into full operation, this correspondence is to provide advanced notification of this proposal and to provide basic operational information as follows:

  • The proposed date to raise the automatic bollards and bring into full operation is Monday 17 August 2020.
  • Vehicles requiring access to the site need to stop at the associated automatic bollard intercom post and use the intercom system to contact the security control room, who upon verifying vehicle entry will lower the automatic bollard. The traffic light will turn from red to green and one vehicle may proceed.
  • Vehicles leaving the site need to approach the associated automatic bollard where upon automatic detection of the vehicle, the bollard will lower. The traffic light will turn from red to green and one vehicle may proceed.
