Crown VMC installed in Australia

Tuesday, September 3rd, 2013

In July this year Crown International delivered and facilitated the install of 4 specially commissioned VMC poles working alongside project partners at  Jenoptik Australia. The project was part of a major upgrade on the M1 as part of a Managed Motorways scheme.The poles were an evolutionary design of Crown’s award winning VMC poles and  the length of the truss arm was increased to 7.5m allowing all lanes on one side of the carriageway to be enforced. The customer was delighted and the accruing benefits will see a significant saving in maintenance costs over the fixed gantries.  The ability of Crown International’s in house design team and it’s quality metal fabrication team enabled delivery of this project through an entirely new set of approval processes in a 6 month lead time. The pole is built to BS-EN and AS standards and type approved and proof engineered for use in Australia. To help manage the installation, a dedicated team from Crown went over to Australia in late June.

Yet again, Crown and their partners have delivered a World’s First.
