TMS | Portable traffic lights investment is a signal of growth off the road
Aylesford based TMS Traffic Management Services Ltd has grown dramatically since the company’s inception in 2006. Throughout 2020, that growth is exemplified by the continued investment in new traffic light units as the company’s footprint across London and the South East spreads increasingly further.
TMS are able to provide a comprehensive package from the planning and preparation of traffic management drawings through to the implementation of the traffic management scheme.
The company’s commitment to further growth via additional traffic light units has seen over £350,000 invested including the latest tracking technology, battery monitoring and utilisation software provided by Trackit247.
There are over 300 TMS units currently in use, so the TMS footprint is vast.
TMS units integrate Autogreen technology, a patented technology that uses artificial intelligence to dynamically adjust signal behaviour. It adapts to ever changing traffic conditions and can improve journey times through roadworks by up to 50%.
The continued investment in new light units is a result of a two-pronged approach.
Firstly, the company commitment to replacing aging units for increased efficiency, and secondly, the sheer demand and requirement for pedestrian control. As 2021 approaches, TMS already has plans for further investment into their traffic light units in addition to some other key investments throughout the company.
Alan Williams, General Manager of TMS spoke to us about the investment, as well as some insights into the future:
“We’ve been on a mission to have new, maximum efficiency equipment with the highest quality back end systems to support their capability.
“Now, after a major investment, the business is well set up to thrive even further as we deliver for our clients. Whilst keeping our clients satisfied is always a key goal, utilising our assets for the benefit of both road users and pedestrians also ranks right up there on our objectives list.
“Further investments to showcase these commitments are planned as we grow our presence across London and the South East.”
