Bolton roads in safe hands with TWM

Location: Bolton, Greater Manchester

Challenge: Update signage and reduce speed in and around the borough

Solution: TWM installed 61 Tri-Colour LED SID signs throughout Bolton

The challenge

Bolton’s roads have been made safer by TWM Traffic Control Systems after 61 signs were installed to help reduce speed in and around the borough. Following reports from residents of speeding vehicles, Bolton council reviewed their signage which was more than 10 years old. Following a successful tender, TWM came in to solve the issue and install new signage that would help reduce speeding.

The solution

Instead via TWM’s advanced technology, the new signs provide a more efficient method of gathering the data to respond to residents’ concerns. The new additions have been welcomed by residents and local councillors alike and has resulted in a decrease in speeding cars through Bolton and created a safer environment for all road users in the area.
