The intelligent road signs, manufactured by Ireland’s PWS, have joined the hire fleet of A-Plant Lux Traffic Control & Management

A-Plant says that the signs ‘can run for one whole year without the need for external re-charge’. They operate using the LED and solar technology from a web based programme that allows customers to update the message on the signs remotely.

A-Plant Lux business development director Jim McLachlan said: “We are confident that we can offer customers massive cost savings on the hire of VMS signs, as well as savings on running costs and reduced maintenance.  The demand for environmentally friendly and cost efficient products is increasing and with the PWS portable solar variable messaging signs we have a VMS that also offers customers environmental benefits such as super-silent features and no emissions.”

He added: “We believe the PWS signs really are the best on the market and offer a flexible solution for intelligent traffic management. The signs are fitted with a portable active traffic management system (PATMS) that offers the user the facility to manage the system from back in the office, saving cost and reacting quicker to changes in road conditions. The system wirelessly integrates with traffic data sources to give real-time project control which not only benefits the customer but also the motorist by providing continuously updated information for example on incident detection or predicted journey times. In short, with our new VMS signs we are offering the latest technology at the best rates in the industry.”
