Welcome to the Highways Service Information Centre
Vehicle Activated Signs (VAS) and Speed Indicator Devices (SID) are signs with illuminated messages that flash when vehicles are travelling above a set trigger speed.
The Local Highway Panels will only install VAS/SID where there is a significant speeding issue or where there is a personal injury collision pattern related to speed. Parishes, District, Borough or the City may however now buy and install their own sign through a licencing process giving more flexibility on installation locations.
If the Parish would like to buy a new sign for installation on the highway then the following information needs to be included within the licence:
Consideration should be given to:
The following are Essex Highways approved suppliers for a VAS/SID:
Telent - https://telent.com/contact
Westcotec - email@example.com
Solagen - firstname.lastname@example.org
Swarco - https://www.swarco.com/contact
All information should be recorded on the application for a licence.

Once installed please inform Local.HighwayPanels@essexhighways.org, so it can be added to the Highways System to get electrically tested as appropriate.
