RVM’s Fast Deployment Tool (FDT) is an innovative solution that was originally 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. The total package of this system consists of several sections of the Heavy Trackway including the FDT. With this system a ‘Rapid Response Team’ is equipped 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 FDT a portable road for Heavy Equipment can be laid out in minutes enabling rescue teams or others to travel soft terrain easily.
Besides being a remporary solution for highway repair, by-pass or counter-flow, the FDT is also ideal for accessing any other critical work zones. Contractors, builders, construction site companies and land developers benefit from FDT, as temporary road performance is essential to maintaining job site access. The FDT can be mounted on any frontloader.
it is successfully in use for aircraft recovery, derailments of trains, traveling with heavy military equipment across swamps.
