Siemens wins major Scottish traffic equipment and maintenance contract
Glasgow City and West Dunbartonshire Councils have awarded ITS (UK) member Siemens Mobility Limited a five-year contract which covers the maintenance of all existing roadside traffic control and information equipment, the supply, design and installation and of new or replacement traffic equipment and all associated civil engineering works.
Starting in February 2021, the five-year contract covers over 1,000 items of traffic equipment across an area of nearly 130 square miles, which includes not only Glasgow (an ITS (UK) Executive Member), but also many of the city’s commuter towns and villages.
Siemens says that for the past ten years it has provided high levels of service and support and will “continue to deliver improvements in the technology, sustainability and reliability of the equipment to benefit both the Councils and road-users”.
“Our local field services team will not only maintain and inspect the existing infrastructure, but will also modernise it,” commented Wilke Reints, Managing Director of Intelligent Traffic Systems for Siemens Mobility in the UK. “For example, by replacing the old Halogen lamps in traffic signals with LED technology to provide a more energy-efficient and cost-effective system, as well as looking to introduce our latest Plus+ traffic control solution for any new or upgrade works.”
