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!

The Burnham Parish Council is grateful to acknowledge the funding provided by the Burnham Beeches Community Board, a division of Buckinghamshire Council. This support has been instrumental in enabling the purchase of the MVAS equipment.
