Traffic control systems specialist TWM has posted record sales of environmentally friendly traffic signs in 2019.

Following this news, TWM has said it will ensure at least 75% of traffic signs and signals in 2020 are powered by either wind or solar energy.

TWM specialises in designing, manufacturing and installing innovative traffic control systems. It’s key provider of signs, signals 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 and data collection systems.

Air pollution sensors

The company has also introduced signage that can be powered by lithium ion batteries, another more environmentally friendly alternative to 230V power.

An example of where these sustainable signs are already making an impact is in North Yorkshire County Council, where TWM redesigned the current signage to ensure that there was a minimal impact on the environment.

‘Sustainability is at the heart of what we do at TWM and we are always looking for the next way to make our products more environmentally friendly.

‘We’re delighted that we supplied more wind and solar powered signs than ever before in 2019 and we’re already looking forward to eclipsing this achievement in 2020.

‘At TWM, we have a passion for developing equipment that brings enhanced road safety to both drivers and pedestrians. Currently, we are in the process of developing new technology that will mean that we can monitor the air pollution where our signs are based, giving us invaluable data.’

Company director at TWM

As well as developing air pollution sensors, TWM is developing sensors that can detect floods in high risk areas.

These sensors will sit alongside others currently available, which include road and air temperature monitoring.
