A Travellerway is the support towers and main cable system together with a double drum winch and cables used for stream gaging and sediment sampling. It is used in locations where there are no bridges or the stream is unsuitable for safe boat gaging. For short to medium term gaging studies, the MODEL 4765 and MODEL 4770 winches can be quickly mounted on the operating side support post, the discharge measurements taken and the winch packed up and moved to the next site. MODEL 4765 and MODEL 4770 winches are light enough to be transported in a normal field vehicle. For permanent or long term installations, the winch is generally located in a shed. The MODEL 4780 is designed for permanent installations on larger streams or rivers. The principal advantage of the double drum winch is the ease of traversing as the forces exerted by the sounding weight or sampler are largely cancelled out.

MODEL 4765 contains: Winch, traveller block, main cable, backstays, traversing cable, traveller posts, deadmen (in-ground main cable anchorages), rigging screws and cable fittings. Special kits can be assembled to meet specific customer needs. Each system can be adapted to existing manned cableway steel work and main being specifically designed for this type of installation.
