The Slip Road Pole is based on our already proven CESS Pole it allows the user to lower a variable message motorway sign down to ground level for maintenance. It is mounted at the side of the carriage way and is commonly used on slip roads in conjunction with our VMC Pole™ on the main motorway. The pole can lower the sign down to ground level, once at ground level it can be rotated around so that the operator can gain access to the back of the sign for maintenance.

It delivers significant cost savings over fixed posts, removing the need for ladders and additional safety and access equipment when maintenance is required. The pole’s first implementation will be on a managed motorway scheme in the UK.

Designed to fulfil a number of functions the Slip Road Pole™ will be used for mounting motorway sign equipment as well as traffic monitoring and enforcement equipment. However the design can be extended to other applications and can be both upscaled and downscaled depending on need.
