On Your Bike with Rennicks MTS at The Tour de France 2014

Categories: MOBILE VMS, INTELLIGENT TRANSPORT SYSTEMS,

Date: 12th August 2014

The Tour de France Grand Depart 2014 started in Yorkshire and Rennicks MTS played a key part in Stage 2 of the event. Cash & Traffic Management (CTM) working with WRG were chosen to deliver the event management infrastructure to enable the cyclists to pass smoothly through the Yorkshire countryside and villages.

The logistical and technical complexities of the event led them to contact Rennicks MTS to assist them using the high definition portable Variable Message Signs to provide traffic management information and route directions enabling the various highways teams to co-ordinate traffic movement in the wider area around Yorkshire. CTM has a proven track record of delivering large-scale, technically challenging projects for a global audience and Rennicks MTS were delighted to assist them at very short notice to deliver this memorable sporting event for both the UK and France.

Portable Variable Message Signs (mVMS)

A mix of Advantage portable Variable Message Signs in different sizes were deployed for Stage 2 of the event travelling from York to Sheffield and even on the M6, a key route to the Yorkshire gateway. Advantage 4260, 4280 and 42100 units with their high definition screens are the best on the market in terms of quality and clarity of messages. They are able to display long messages without scrolling and the high pixel definition allows clarity which is hard to surpass. The Advantage mVMS range is fully compliant for use on highways or urban roads. Trailer mounted, the units are compact enough to deploy in many different locations throughout the region and flexible enough to be moved quickly should the need arise.

The Results

Rennicks MTS responded very quickly to the request for some 24 Advantage portable Variable Message Signs to be hired for this major event. Rennicks MTS worked with CTM to strategically place the units and each message was carefully prepared and changed, to meet the various requirements and enable the smooth flow of traffic and crowds. Everything went to plan and as crowds of people descended on the small and larger regions around Yorkshire, using the solar powered, LED sign technology enabled them to navigate around effectively. The messages enabled visitors to make a choice to avoid congested areas. Steve Russell-Yorde, MD at CTM said “Rennicks MTS were contracted very late in the day due to a last minute request from the client, but they delivered a very complex and challenging mVMS project. Their professionalism and can do attitude stood out for us and our confidence in their ability to deliver was second to none.” Rennicks MTS, who also supplied intelligent transport solutions to the London 2012 Games”, were delighted to work together with CTM helping make the Tour de France an exciting, safe, successful and memorable event for everyone.
