Highways England to deploy Sepura radios

Highways England is set to receive over 700 Sepura radios in its latest critical communications upgrade.

The SC20 radios are expected to support the government company’s traffic officers in keeping almost 7000 km worth of major roads and motorways safe, free-flowing and serviceable. 

“The SC20 had a number of features that will undoubtedly enhance the safety of our officers when on patrol or attending incidents”, Highways England Technology Operations Manager Al Edwards said. 

“The loud, clear audio is a key factor, ensuring that even when large goods vehicles are passing close by, critical messages can still be heard. In addition to this, the rugged design of the radio ensures that even in wet, dirty conditions, our staff will be able to rely on their radio to continue working for them,” he concluded.

The traffic officers often coordinate with other patrols and one of seven control rooms via the UK’s national Airwave network.
