On Monday 21st December 2020, four Type-B VMS arrived from our partners and world leaders in VMS technology, SWARCO Futurit, located in Austria.

Regency to Pym Street Upgrades

These state-of-the-art Variable Message Signs are part of new infrastructure for the South Australia, Regency to Pym Street upgrade of South Road. The $354.3 million project will result in a non-stop North-South Corridor stretching 47 kilometres, improving travel time for commuters by up to 8 minutes during peak periods.

Delivery, Inspection and Storage

Once the signs arrived and were unloaded, each sign was inspected by BRAUMS staff. Signs were then stored off site over the Christmas - New Year period. Transported to site the week after New Year, three signs have since been installed. One remaining sign is being held at Visionstream Warehouse for a post-delivery FAT which commences this week (beginning 18th January 2021).
