Mott MacDonald re-appointed by the Highways Agency to provide advice on the use of Variable Message Signs

Mott MacDonald has been re-appointed by the Highways Agency to provide technical advice and support on the use of Variable Message Signs (VMS) on the English motorway and trunk road network. The project is part of an on-going investment in VMS by the Highways Agency to disseminate key information to motorists with the aim of delivering safe roads, reliable journeys and more informed travellers. This latest appointment will further develop the work carried out on the use of VMS under an earlier appointment, which included a number of road safety campaigns using VMS.

Mott MacDonald’s role includes preparing documentation explaining the use of VMS, advising on the management of displaying safety messages and on policy for future developments such as the use of mobile VMS within road works. In addition, Mott MacDonald will help revise the joint Association of Chief Police Officers and Highways Agency policy and procedures for the use of VMS to reflect the introduction of Highways Agency traffic officers, the national traffic control centre and regional control centres.

Mott MacDonald is also involved in various other VMS related projects including the monitoring of the Active Traffic Management project, which will contribute towards tackling congestion, increased reliability of journey times, safer travel, improved information provided to drivers and smarter roads and the development of the Highways Agency LOGging ENvironment (HALOGEN) providing centralised storage, retrieval and dissemination of current and historical log data generated by Highways Agency systems in all Police Control Offices throughout England. The consultant is also assisting with TrafficMap, a system providing real time travel information including incident, message sign settings and average speed on the Highways Agency network.
