Sandwell Council awards traffic signal maintenance contract to telent
UK-based telent has secured a four-year contract to provide maintenance services for the traffic signal network in Sandwell Council, West Midlands. telent has been offering maintenance services to Sandwell Council since January 2008. Under the contract, the company will be responsible for maintaining 109 traffic signal junctions, 174 pedestrian crossings and eight journey time monitoring cameras.
telent transport regional manager Samantha Harvey said: “We are delighted to continue working with Sandwell Council, an appointment that further demonstrates the breadth of telent’s innovation and proactivity with constantly changing road technology. “Our understanding of the customer is second to none, and this contract highlights our expertise in the traffic sector.”
The company secured the renewed £2m contract through a competitive tendering process. telent traffic business development manager Rob Conlon stated: “This contract builds on our existing relationship with Sandwell Council and we are looking forward to continuing to work closely with them and build on our already excellent relationship.”
The deal marks the third contract win for telent’s traffic business this year, following two contracts from Stoke-on-Trent City Council and Oxfordshire County Council. The company secured a four-year contract to supply and maintain traffic signal and related intelligent transport systems (ITS) equipment for Stoke-on-Trent City Council. In February, telent won the five-year Oxfordshire County Council contract to supply, install and maintain signalling equipment and associated ITS on-street solutions across the county.
