Every time a tall vehicle approaches a low tunnel, or overweight truck crosses an unstable bridge, there are serious potential consequences. Incidents involving low rail bridges alone are estimated to cost taxpayers £23m a year. Each incurring a cost of around £14,000 and shutting down roads from hours up to days.
Coeval are at the forefront of combating the problem, and continue to install and maintain intelligent road signs all over the UK. Take a look at some of our work in our video below.
Our vehicle warning systems use sensors to track overheight or overweight vehicles well before they get to the hazard. They then send the message to a sign that can warn the driver, either stopping them or diverting them.
See the specs of our bridge and tunnel protection systems below.
