Vehicle Activated Signs

Gloucester Highways have met with members of the PC and they are happy with the 6 positions that the poles for the VAS are to be situated. The poles have now been erected by Highways and the two VAS signs have been installed . The first sign is on Shutter Island facing east and the other sign is outside the Village Hall facing west.

The plan is to move the VAS signs between the six pole positions on a regular basis. The signs will record data that can be used to monitor the volume of traffic in a particular time period and on a daily basis as well. The average speed will be a useful addition to traffic surveys.
