Fast Deployment Tool
RVM's Fast Deployment Tool is an innovative solution developed to reduce time wasted in traffic jams. The Dutch Ministry of Transport, Public Works and Water Management has formed a project team to find short term solutions to reduce traffic jams. This project team is called "File proof". One of the most promising solutions at the moment is the project called "Verplaatsbaar wegdek". This is an instant road to be placed in the soft shoulder to create a diversion around an accident or something else blocking the motorway. The total package of this system consists of several sections of the HeavyTrackway, type Mammoth Mat plus the Fast Deployment Tool. With this system we have equipped a quick response team that, in case of a major accident, can be transported to the location of the accident and lay out a temporary roadway suitable for all possible vehicles on the motorway. With the fast deployment tool a portable road for Heavy Equipment can be laid out in minutes enabeling resque teams or others to travel soft terrain easily. It is successfully in use for aircraft recovery, derailments of trains, traveling with heavy military equipment across swamps.
