Newly installed VAS Solutions
Residents of the Wirral have seen improvements to local road safety thanks to newly installed electronic vehicle-activated signage from TWM Traffic Control Systems.
TWM, which is part of The Pilot Group, secured a three-year deal with Wirral Council to introduce a solution that would help to improve speed awareness and make roads across the region safer.
The contract, which is worth almost half a million pounds, has seen TWM design, supply and install over 20 LED Vehicle Activated Signs (VAS) across the Wirral Council area.
Capitalising on sustainable power
The VAS, which help to warn drivers of any impending danger due to excessive speeds or unforeseen hazards, use radar technology to detect oncoming vehicles and includes a combination of sensors and wireless communications.
By only illuminating upon detection of a car, the signs are also able to avoid any wasted energy and could be powered off-grid or by renewable energy sources where possible.
