Highways England extends relationship with Sepura

2/25/2020

Highways England has issued its frontline traffic officers with Sepura SC20 TETRA devices for use on the UK’s national Airwave network.

According to Sepura, over 700 handsets - which are IP68 rated - have been bought by the organisation. These are necessary to “[help patrols] communicate with other patrols, as well as back to Highways England’s control rooms.”

Speaking of the roll-out, Business Development Director for Sepura, Andy Gregory, said: “It is a pleasure to further our working relationship with Highways England. The SC20, with its rugged design and clear audio - coupled with its ability to run intelligent applications - will ensure that officers are well protected, and always in touch with their control centre.”

Al Edwards, Highways England technology operations manager, said: “The SC20 has a number of features that will undoubtedly enhance the safety of our officers when on patrol or attending incidents. The loud, clear audio is a key factor, while the rugged design of the radio ensures that our staff will be able to rely on the technology [even in difficult conditions].”
 
Highways England manages over 4,300 miles of road.
