Technology and network services company Telent has extended its Traffic Control Maintenance contract with Transport for London by a year.
It’ll continue to supply, install and maintain more than 3,000 traffic control assets for TfL, including traffic signals, Variable Message Signs and Over-height Vehicle Detection systems.
Since it took on the contract in 2014, Telent says it has deployed its Plug and Play traffic signal system, which drastically reduces time spent on essential traffic signal installation works, minimising disruption to local residents and road users.
“Telent has an excellent track record of successfully delivering challenging, large-scale projects and we’re delighted that TfL has exercised the option to extend the contract with us,” said Nigel Weldon, Business Development Director, Highways. “The recent Coronavirus pandemic has presented some extreme challenges for TfL and working together closely to thoroughly understand those challenges has enabled us to tailor the service that Telent provides to meet TfL’s needs exactly.”
