One of the world's leading traffic solutions businesses, Siemens Mobility, Intelligent Traffic Systems has become members of Safer Highways.
Siemens Mobility, Intelligent Traffic Systems (which will become Yunex Traffic, a Siemens business, later this year) supplies and maintains the majority of intelligent traffic systems and roadside traffic management infrastructure in the UK. In the past year, the company has adapted and continued to work with its clients and partners throughout the Covid-19 pandemic to keep critical infrastructure operational and key workers safe. The company's ITS experts in its UK Service Operations Centre in Poole have supported many local authorities across the UK to provide ongoing traffic management service throughout and its global manufacturing facility, also based in Poole, UK has also continued to supply products to its UK and global customers.
Most recently, the company has successfully delivered ANPR cameras and enforcement technology in support of London's ULEZ and CAZ schemes in Birmingham and Portsmouth. Its recently launched Plus+ signal solution that significantly saves installation time on street and subsequent risk and disruption to road users is now operational and has been adopted at sites across the UK.
Commenting on joining Safer Highways, Wilke Reints, Managing Director, Siemens Mobility, Intelligent Traffic Systems, UK said: "Siemens Mobility is pleased to become a member of Safer Highways community.
As a leading manufacturer, maintainer and operator of Intelligent Traffic Systems in the UK and around the world, we look forward to engaging on the issues of health, safety and wellbeing. We work in an exciting and increasingly fast paced industry, and our places of work can be challenging and dangerous. Safeguarding our people, those of our customers and partners and, of course the travelling public, must be at the core of what we do - within Siemens Mobility and across our industry. With our new name and identity, Yunex Traffic, we are excited to contribute to the discussion and help the Highways Sector set a benchmark that other industries would be proud to achieve".
Kevin Robinson, Chief Executive of Safer Highways said: "I am really pleased to be able to announce the Intelligent Traffic Systems business of Siemens Mobility as new members. It is one of the most respected businesses in the highways and transport sector not just in the UK, but around the world. I very much look forward to working with them, as Yunex Traffic, in the coming months to contribute the important work we have to do to keep on raising awareness around best practice in health, safety and wellbeing."
