Marshaling & Traffic Queue Control

Variable Message Signs (VMS) can be strategically deployed to marshal queuing traffic management requirements.

Our signs offer the ability to update estimated wait times remotely via Phone or PC application in a matter of seconds, allowing you to be responsive to peaks in demand. 

Using VMS to display estimated wait times for queues is a tried and tested calming measure on the road network, at events and in the hospitality industry.


Ease tensions and keep the public informed easily with a combination of our solar powered, 5-colour LED signs and our smaller 2 coloured HD Compact that can all display text, pictograms and animated messages.

Signs are portable and can be vehicle activated, allowing for maximum flexibility.

Public Information

Use VMS for smoother operations as you quickly and easily inform people of important information.

Minimise staff risk and reduce the chance of complications by ensuring the public are seeking instruction from message signs instead of people.

Our signs are reliable and have been successfully used for some of the UK’s largest events and construction projects.

Data Collection

Inform future operations, help with planning and highlight areas of risk.

Using the discreetly integrated data collection radar, you can use our VMS to collect and report on trends regarding;

  • Speed

  • Times
  • Levels of traffic

Data uploads to our servers every hour and can be downloaded by users at any time.
