Variable Message Signs (VMS) inform road users and manage traffic flow. They are becoming more widespread and are growing in importance. While primarily designed to serve the nationals of each country, VMS need to be understood by road users of all nationalities to be fully effective. Also needed is a continuity of operation across state boundaries. Increasing use of the network and further developments in network operation will increase the pressure to develop a strategy for dealing with VMS.


The objective of this task shall be to monitor developments across Europe and to understand the issues arising from and the obstacles to VMS harmonisation and interoperability. The work shall focus on informing CEDR about the time frame in which issues should be resolved and developing a strategy for their resolution.
