MVIS | Hire Works Egress Safety Solution
Site safety is imperative for both road workers, and road users, and the MVIS’ Works Egress Safety Solution ensures that drivers are notified when works traffic is exiting a work zone, on to the main carriageway.
Two sensors are located at the beginning of the acceleration zone within the works area, with a HD Compact VMS deployed after the sensors which informs the works driver to wait.
Once the sensors are triggered by the works vehicle, the message on the HD Compact changes to tell the driver to “Merge when safe”.
At the same time a VMS deployed facing the carriageway prior to the sensors displays a message to road users to alert them of works traffic joining the carriageway.
After a set time the HD Compact VMS reverts to its “Works Egress Wait Here” message and the VMSA goes blank.

And what makes it unique?
Graeme Lee, Sales Manager explained how this system stands out from anything similar:
“The MVIS system has the ability to switch off, so the message doesn’t have to be displayed at all times. When there is no works traffic leaving site, the VMS can remain off, meaning road users don’t need to be distracted or unnecessarily ‘aware’ of merging site vehicles.
“When necessary, the system will display the information, so safety for all parties is as efficient as possible with no unnecessary information for drivers.”
“We place such an emphasis on-site safety when it comes to sending our operatives to site, but also on how the work site integrates with road users.”
