Infrastructure technology specialist Coeval is the latest highway company to become a member of Safer Highways.
The company, that supplies electronic road signs and over-height vehicle detection systems to help keep both road workers and road users safe, on both the local and strategic networks, uses intelligent Radio Linked LED technology to ensure it delivers clear, reliable and flexible messaging alongside valuable data and connectivity to other highway control systems.
This helps provide solutions to safety challenges on the network by providing a platform that helps influence speeding driver, warning of hazards ahead and protecting pedestrians and cyclists as well as bridges and tunnels. As well as that, it is helping local authorities and road operators improving air quality by influencing road user choices when they travel on the network.
Speaking about joining Safer Highways, Richard Bevins, Managing Director of Coeval said: “We are proud that most of the schemes we are involved in are safety related, so it makes sense to be a part of Safer Highways. We see it as the main driving force in the industry on everything related health, safety and wellbeing and we are keen to help support it in whatever way we can. During the past year, we have developed our technology further so we can interface signs with third party systems that are offering crucial information that could be linked to signs on the network we can provide the best possible information to the travelling public-making them safer and well informed to help influence their behaviour on the network,” he said. A good example would be use of portable variable message signs or vehicle activated hazard, speed warning or indicator signs that could help keep cyclists and other motorists safe as the country looks to implement new cycle lanes as part of the Government’s commitment to more active travel,” he adds.
Kevin Robinson, Chief Executive of Safer Highways said; “It is great to see another successful SME become a part of Safer Highways. Coeval is dedicated to helping provide part of the vital communication needed to keep road workers and road users safe on the network which is essential if we are to create seamless journeys that are safe and free-flowing.”
