Ashghal deploys Qatar’s first OVDS system

Qatar’s Public Works Authority (Ashghal) has announced the launch of the country’s first Over-Height Vehicle Detection System (OVDS) at the Duhail intersection last week, the Peninsula has reported. The new system detects vehicles that violate the maximum permitted height of 5.5 metres before entering tunnels, or passing under bridges. Ashghal said it is studying the possibility of introducing the OVDS at more intersections across Doha.
