MVIS | The 5 reasons High-Speed expertise provides a safer, more efficient road network
MVIS prides itself on keeping Britain moving.
From major motorways and A-roads to inner-city and urban environments, MVIS has developed a reputation for both quality products and outstanding service.
Often working in collaboration with Highways England, MVIS has become a trusted asset when it comes to the delivery of safe, efficient VMS and ITS solutions onto the UK’s roads.
As the company has continued to deliver and further its stellar reputation, MVIS has become more involved in the preparation phase of major schemes.
The company provides expert consultation for key upgrades in relation to the VMS and ITS elements of works, including where units will be positioned, how many are needed and how to make the most of the allocated units to provide maximum efficiency in relation to traffic flow, whilst also delivering the optimum level of safety for the road user.
Focusing on the high-speed road network, here are 5 reasons why MVIS is the choice for any high-speed scheme of work:
Expertise & Longevity
MVIS has extensive high-speed knowledge dating back to 2012 and its first schemes on the M4 and M5.
MVIS has provided VMS units to a number of high-profile, high-speed schemes ever since. These schemes include:
- M1 J16-J19, J23a-J25, J28-J35a, J39-J42
- MSM M60
- M27 J4-J11
- M62 J10-J12
- M20 SMP
- Oldbury Viaduct
- A14 IDT
When deciding on who to deliver a key scheme, quality needs to shine through.
Buying into ‘Aim for Zero’ MVIS has had zero incidents of near-misses or injury in its 8-year history, and that exemplary record can be attributed to an attitude towards safety and quality that is ingrained within the company.
This ethos is rubber-stamped with a number of ISO accreditations that leave no doubt as to what you’re getting when you bring MVIS into a job and onto a scheme.
The company ISO accreditations include ISO45001: Occupational Health & Safety, ISO9001: Quality Management Systems, as well as ISO14001: Environmental Management Systems.
Training for on-site work
The MVIS approach to training is continuous and has a number of key elements:
- MVIS staff fully trained as hiab and slinger signalers for delivery, installation and removal.
- Fully health and safety trained staff. Internally, MVIS has a programme of Health and Safety training that is ongoing for every operative, in addition to externally completed health and safety training to ensure quality across the board.
- CSCS: Depending on their role on site, MVIS workforce is all on site with the appropriate and relevant CSCS card. Even the management team are CSCS qualified so they can visit the site to carry out essential auditing.
The MVIS fleet size supporting their high-speed capabilities is vast, with 192 of their VMS-C units currently in the fleet.
Due to current demand, another 30 are to be added by the end of Jan 2020.
Solar IP unit
The Solar IP supports MVIS’ high-speed operation by providing an environmentally friendly ITS solution.
The versatility of the Solar IP makes it perfect for high-speed work, using Solar IP and any combination of VMS, ANPR, CCTV, radar or contactless sensor. If things change, Solar IP can be quickly and easily reconfigured to meet the immediate requirement.
With such expertise, accredited quality, as well as in-depth training, a vast fleet and a versatile product range – why wouldn’t MVIS get the call?
