UK technology and network services company telent
has been awarded a four-year contract to provide traffic signal maintenance services to England’s Sandwell Council.
The deal marks the third win for telent’s traffic business in 2018, following wins with Stoke-on-Trent City Council and Oxfordshire County Council, both also in England.
The Sandwell deal – tendered - sees telent retain its decade-long contract. It covers 109 traffic signal junctions, 174 pedestrian crossings and eight journey-time monitoring cameras.
The renewed contract, which started in April, is worth up to €2.26 million, said Rob Conlon, business development manager for traffic at telent.
Also, telent was recently appointed as the new supplier to Highways England to operate and manage the National Roads Telecommunications Service, a vital component of the UK’s critical national infrastructure.
