A FIRM has been helping Scotland prepare to host the Commonwealth Games.

Infotec, based in Tamworth Road, Ashby , has been fulfilling orders for passenger information screens at a range of train stations expected to serve the event.

Millions of pounds have been invested in enhancing railway stations at key venues or at ‘feeder’ stations likely to be busy during the games – the largest multi-sport event ever held in Scotland.

Keeping the thousands of visitors on the transport infrastructure informed will be vital to the success of the event, which starts on July 23 and runs for 11 days.

Infotec, the UK’s leading manufacturer of electronic passenger display systems, has provided upgraded customer information screens for dozens of stations.

Infotec project manager Steve Hames said: “We are delighted to be playing a part in keeping visitors and commuters alike on the move during the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.

“Our products and services certainly helped with this at London 2012, and we are confident they will do the same here. Visitors and commuters alike will have ¬immediate access to the latest live information and when the games are over they will continue to be of benefit to those who live, work in and visit the area.”
