The Managing Director of portable VMS company Mobile Visual Information Systems (MVIS) is hailing his company’s deployment on the Highways England network as the largest such delivery to date.
“We are pleased to have been able to demonstrate our capacity to quickly deliver a solution on this scale” said Pat Musgrave, who’s MD of both MVIS and Bartco UK, “the UK manufacture of our VMS was crucial to our ability to meet the tight deadline.”
They created a journey time solution (JTS) for Bam Morgan Sindall Joint Venture (BMJV) and Costain, contracted by Highways England, which 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.
Morgan Sindall’s senior operations manager, Dave Todd, said 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.
“Both BMJV and Costain have considerable experience of working with MVIS, and have confidence in its ability to deliver a first class service. The company also offered the best value.”
MVIS says it works in partnership with other leading ITS providers to create solutions to help the road network to operate efficiently. MVIS’ innovative, solar powered solutions incorporate monitoring and visual information equipment, all featuring leading-edge technology: VMS, ANPR and CCTV cameras and radar. Bartco UK is the sales and manufacturing division of Bartco Traffic Equipment Pty, supplying its VMS and MVIS’s Solar IP multi-use trailer platforms.
