Movable Vehicle Activated Sign

A Movable Vehicle Activated Sign (MVAS) is a road sign usually triggered by the speed of the vehicle which can be moved from site to site.  From November 2017, there will be a MVAS in either Latimer or Ley Hill.

Four groundscrews have been installed, three in Ley Hill (Jasons Hill, Botley Road and at the bottom of Kiln Lane) and one in Latimer (Codmore Wood Road).  The MVAS will be moved between the four sites on a regular basis. 

The MVAS will flash a speed warning for vehicles exceeding the speed limit.  It will also record data that can be used to monitor the volume of traffic during a particular period as well as on a daily basis.  More importantly it will give us information on the average speed cars are travelling.
