SWARCO provides solution to help keep London’s road users informed

 SWARCO Traffic Ltd has completed work on a series of Variable Message Sign (VMS) upgrades for Transport of London (TfL) across the capital, as well as integrating its leading management and monitoring technologies.  

SWARCO has upgraded communications to all 134 TfL VMS across London to UTMC, as well as deployed its intelligent and modular MyCity platform, enabling TfL operators to update, manage and monitor the signs remotely.  
John Pickworth, Managing Director of SWARCO Traffic, says SWARCO is proud to support TfL with its proven expertise in designing and supplying bespoke and reliable solutions: “We have a proven track record of providing highly reliable and high-quality traffic management solutions, and we are pleased to be working closely with TfL on this project to meet their needs. 
We are working hard to constantly evolve and further improve MyCity; and as an open and modular platform that can interface with any existing solutions, it offers transformative potential. 
Carl Eddlestone, Head of Asset Operations at TFL said: “We work to keep people moving on London’s roads safely and it’s vital for us to be able to communicate information to people travelling on the network. This upgrade to our variable message signs makes it easier for us to do this and we are working closely with SWARCO on these improvements, which will benefit road users across the capital.” 

TfL maintenance contractors completed the installation works in March 2022.
