Siemens has been awarded a new five-year traffic signal maintenance contract in Scotland.
Glasgow City Council and West Dunbartonshire Council have awarded a joint contract to the firm to maintain roadside traffic control and information equipment for a period of up to five years, commencing 1 August 2015.
The new contract includes the provision of associated ancillary support services, as well as the supply of works and services to support the councils’ traffic control operation and periodical planned signal and optical maintenance.
With equipment at over 500 traffic signal intersections and more than 400 pedestrian crossing facilities, as well as numerous variable message signs and below ground detection sites, the contract represents one of the largest of its kind renewed by the councils following the completion of a five year contract by Siemens.
Tony Ellis, northern regional manager at Siemens, said: “This is a significant contract which we are pleased to retain and continue the successful working relationships with Glasgow City and West Dunbartonshire Councils. The decision to select Siemens was based on a competitive combination of quality, cost, proven competence and capability. We are pleased to continue to work with the councils to deliver an efficient transport network.”
