Two villages in Wales have been made safer by TWM Traffic Control Systems as part of a programme aimed at the introduction of 20mph zones for residential roads.TWM were challenged by a Safe Routes in Communities programme, which is funded by the Welsh Government, to introduce signage in the two villages that would warn drivers of the new speed limit in a 20mph zone.
Kevin Marshall, Company Director at TWM said
“We were pleased to work alongside the local councils representing Rossett and Cefn Mawr to deliver the new signage enforcing the 20mph speed limit. We hope that by installing this new, innovative signage we have created a safer environment for road users and pedestrians throughout the villages.”
Darren Green of Wrexham County Council said:
“We were extremely impressed with the level of service provided by the sales team and the installers at TWM, they conducted a thorough and professional job from start to finish. We’re delighted that the new signage is now in place in Rossett and Cefn Mawr which has made these villages safer environments for both the villagers and those passing through.”
TWM is a key provider of signs, sensors and traffic control systems to local authorities, parish councils, traffic management companies and contractors. Products include speed display signs, vehicle activated signs, hazard warnings, pedestrian crossing solutions, school warning zones, bespoke signage, SMART sensors and data collection systems.
“We are delighted with our new lighting system. Not only do our pupils and staff benefit from optimum lighting levels for learning, the school will now enjoy low maintenance and reduced energy bills for many years to come.”
Spokesperson on behalf of the school
“We are proud to have been commissioned for this project. Bringing schools up to date with the latest lighting technologies is a delicate balancing act between funding and classroom closure to facilitate low-impact installation. The installation took just over four weeks and was conducted during the summer period to ensure minimum disruption. It’s anticipated that the payback on investment will be in just four years, and by specifying products with up to a five-year guarantee, further savings via a maintenance free system will also be enjoyed.”
