MVAS (Moveable Vehicle Activated Sign)
Moveable Vehicle Activated Signs (MVAS) are electronic signs which only become activated when approaching motor vehicles are exceeding a certain speed. The electronic speed signs are great for self-deployment to improve road safety and encourage safer driving speeds. MVAS are intended to be used as a traffic calming measure and a speed awareness tool. When a vehicle approaches the sign at a speed greater than the legal speed limit for the road the MVAS will flash that legal speed.
Good News! Burnham Parish Council have recently purchased 4 Moveable Vehicle Activated Signs (MVAS) and these were installed in September 2023. This has been a (very) long and tedious process but we got there in the end!
Buckinghamshire Council who are the ‘Highways Authority’ for the area, allow the signs to be displayed at the following 13 locations:
Opposite Poyle Lane turning
On verge after Nicholas House
On grass verge just before school exit
On grass verge before Tennis/Bowls Club
On verge at Almond Road junction
Grass verges around No 70
Grass verge outside No 30
At junction with Huntercombe Close
Junction with Bingham Road
Next to planters opposite no 32
The signs are regularly moved around the Parish rotatating between these sites on a monthly basis.
