The importance of traffic management solutions:
At the heart of every successful event lies an often essential, but often overlooked component: traffic management. Sunbelt Rentals offers a comprehensive solution to ensure a safe and exceptional visitor experience while demonstrating environmental responsibility.
After conducting an initial site survey, their team of experts works with event organizers to seamlessly integrate solutions to facilitate traffic management at events such as sports, music, festivals and winter events.
Safety is Sunbelt Rentals’ number one priority for their people, customers, communities and the climate. Using traffic management equipment, the journey to and from an event can be profoundly affected without unnecessary delays, setting a positive tone for the event. In addition, effective traffic management, crowd control and perimeter security help reduce the risk of incidents, ensuring safety for all participants.
With greater awareness of the environmental impacts of events, effective traffic management can help reduce traffic congestion and reduce emissions, creating an environmentally friendly event. Effectively managed traffic, through the installation of temporary traffic lights, VMS, event signage, pedestrian and vehicle crossings, barriers and fencing, can reduce our carbon footprint and help protect our planet.
Sunbelt Rentals offers a versatile fleet of equipment, where VMS is an indispensable solution for any modern traffic management system. The boards can be programmed to display dynamic and customized messages during events, providing immediate updates. This includes crucial information such as safety notices, parking availability, lane closures and event promotions, helping those attending or navigating events. Furthermore, they can be adapted to the needs of each event, allowing detailed and accurate information to be shared.
