Traffic Light Hire – Why Is It Getting All The Attention?

Safety is a pivotal part of successful roadwork. Besides, the unpredictable nature of pedestrians and motorists, and massive machinery, can create a combination where mishaps and accidents can occur. As a result, traffic management equipment is constantly being improved and developed with the intention of eliminating the potential of accidents leading to severe harm.

While we ponder on the subject, it’s essential to understand the practical nature of these portable traffic signal rental.

Increased Safety

The primary reason to utilise portable traffic lights hire is that they can remove the requirement for traffic controllers from the road. By eliminating human intervention, the probability of traffic controllers being harmed gets a dramatic hit, which further depends on the type of traffic light used.

While the PTL2 trailer units work autonomously, PTL3 tripods need a traffic controller to accommodate and manage traffic lights. But, they can be entirely off the road and change the light from far off.

Temporary Traffic Light Hire Offers Better Visibility

Portable units tend to use bright LED lights visible during the night and daytime. They can even cut through the fog and heavy rain in many situations. Moreover, LEDs can be seen from extended distances and assist motorists in anticipating different road conditions as they approach. Yet another advantage of LED’s is the long-lasting life and energy efficiency nature making them effective.


The services of traffic light hire are straightforward and do not involve any substantial paperwork. Once you have hired the portable lights, you can set them up easily and conveniently. Less preparation and training is involved and relatively more time getting the job done. In addition, the design of every unit provides the best advantage from the very least amount of equipment.

Cost Savings

When it comes to cost-effectiveness, a traffic light hire Melbourne runs longer and saves a wholesome amount. When considering traffic controller risks and labour costs associated with using personnel over a machine, savings become apparent. One must know that the units operate through solar power with backup batteries and do not incur any maintenance fee for recurring operations.
