Mobile Visual Information Systems (MVIS) and Bartco UK say they have delivered the largest deployment of portable variable message signs (VMS) on Highways England’s network to date.
The companies have created a journey time solution (JTS) for Bam Morgan Sindall Joint Venture (BMJV) and Costain, contracted by Highways England.
The JTS forms part of the new customer experience pilot project on the M1 corridor, which incorporates smart motorway roadworks at three sites between junctions 42 and 15.
According to Morgan Sindall’s senior operations manager, Dave Todd, MVIS was selected to deliver the installation for a variety of reasons: “Due to its partnership with Bartco UK, MVIS was able to quickly supply the large quantity of VMS required, and the signs were brand new and to EU standard. Indeed all the products are, in our opinion, the best on the market.
Pat Musgrave, managing director of both MVIS and Bartco UK added, “We are pleased to have been able to demonstrate our capacity to quickly deliver a solution on this scale; the UK manufacture of our VMS was crucial to our ability to meet the tight deadline.”
