With a single sign that serves multiple functions, Variable Message Signs (VMS) are an ideal LED signage solution for influencing road user behaviour.
Coeval supply a complete range of motorway VMS, from single line to full colour matrix, and urban VMS with a wide range of pictograms and text messages.
Coeval is a specialist in robust, LED road sign-based systems that advise, inform, educate and protect.
Intelligent VMS can be used to support a number of measures from improved road safety to air quality monitoring; every 4 minutes, someone is injured on a British road and poor air quality is the biggest environmental threat to health in the UK with up to 36,000 deaths a year attributed to long-term exposure (Public Health England, March 2019).
There were 1,748 road deaths in the year ending June 2019, as reported by the DfT (30 July 2020). The statistics also show there were 153,315 casualties of all severities in reported road traffic collisions in 2019. This is 5% lower than in 2018 and is the lowest level since 1979.
The Environment Audit Committee has estimated that total health costs, due to air pollution, range between £8.5 billion and £20.2 billion a year. Utilising intelligent road signage to influence road user behaviour and increase the attractiveness of active travel (walking and cycling), by improving safety and comfort, can support road safety and the improvement in air quality.
Coeval’s VMS are modular in design and can be supplied in one, two or full colour, in varying sizes, and from 12mm to 25mm pixel pitch. We also supply a wide range of parking, tunnel and toll signage.
Our solutions are designed to be easy to install and maintain and, once active, provide a safer environment for us all.

‘Even a short closure of the tunnel causes great congestion in the area, and if an over height vehicle were to cause that level of damage, the tunnel could be closed for hours, if not days, which would bring the whole of the South East of England to a standstill.
When the Coeval over height vehicle detectors were first installed, we were talking about 10’s of vehicles a day that we were stopping; we are now down to low single figures, 4 or 5 vehicles a day we need to extract for being over height, so it’s a great improvement in efficiency through the crossing.’
‘Having used Coeval for the first time, we found them to be friendly and really helpful in ensuring we received the correct item we required. We were happy with the extremely quick response times and professional service they offer. We would definitely recommend their services to others.’
‘Thank you for your prompt and efficient service regarding our request for training on the 21st of August. You guys have been incredibly helpful over this.’
‘Coeval won the tender for the replacement overheight vehicle detector systems. The work was completed within programme and budget. We are now satisfied that the new systems will help protect the bridges for several years to come.’
‘A sound, honest and efficient service provided by Coeval. Would be very happy for Coeval to manufacture and supply more of Swindon’s signs.’
