SVS traffic solution for Covid test centre
A Coronavirus (Covid-19) testing drive-through facility has been built in the north of Portsmouth. It is being used for the testing of NHS and care staff from the Isle of Wight and Hampshire. The site can cater for hundreds of Covid-19 tests a day.
ITS (UK) member Smart Video & Sensing have commissioned their traffic management CCTV system on behalf of Portsmouth City Council around the Tipner site to monitor traffic in the area. The Tipner cameras are part of a 30 camera system installed by SVS which allows easy access to all major routes around Portsmouth.
The site where the drive-through testing will take place was due to be used as an emergency lorry park in the event of a no-deal Brexit and is situated in Tipner just off the M275.
