- TWM Traffic Control Systems provided North Yorkshire County Council parishes with specialist speed limit control signs
- Malton, Beckwithshaw and Norton on Derwent are among those parishes that wanted to help manage the speed of drivers through the area
- 60% of the signs provided in North Yorkshire are environmentally friendly
Fourteen speed limit control signs have been installed in North Yorkshire after local parishes called for help to manage speeding on their roads, and there are more on the way.
The UK’s most innovative traffic control systems specialist, TWM, stepped in to help local towns such as Malton, Beckwithshaw and Norton-on-Derwent after they approached North Yorkshire County Council for assistance in helping decrease the number of speeding cars in their respective areas.
TWM worked with the council to adapt their speed limit control sign to make it unobtrusive and lightweight. The sign displays the words ‘SLOW DOWN’ when motorists passing are going above the designated speed limit.
Kevin Marshall, Company Director at TWM said:
“At TWM, we have a passion for developing equipment that brings enhanced road safety to both drivers and pedestrians.”
“We’re delighted that North Yorkshire County Council approached us to help a number of local parishes with their speeding issues. With fourteen signs currently installed and more to come, we hope they are successful in keeping traffic travelling through these towns to the correct speed.”
Up to 95% of signs manufactured by TWM are available to be powered by either wind or solar energy and the innovative traffic control systems specialist has also introduced signage that can be powered by lithium ion batteries, another more environmentally friendly alternative to 230 V power.
Over 60% of the signs installed in North Yorkshire are environmentally friendly and this is an aim for TWM moving forward.
Kevin Marshall continued:
“Sustainability is at the heart of what we do at TWM and we are always looking for the next way to make our products more environmentally friendly.”
“We’re delighted that we supplied more wind and solar powered signs than ever before in 2019 and we’re already looking forward to eclipsing this achievement in 2020.”
