telent has won a record contract worth well over £100m as part of a major award from Transport for London (TfL). The overall contract is an eight-year agreement, apportioned to 3 suppliers, that will see the capital’s 6,000 traffic signals upgraded and maintained to the latest, greenest standards. telent’s contract is believed to be the largest single traffic signal supply and maintenance contract ever awarded in the UK.
telent will supply, install and maintain all traffic control equipment in the West and South West of London, making it responsible for 49% of London’s entire traffic signal estate.
telent are working with Microsoft and CGI to help the London Underground modernize the systems that securely monitor, manage and automate its things, everything from escalators, lifts and HVAC controls to closed-circuit video and communication systems. Data from sensors and intelligent edge devices — to closely monitor temperature, vibration, humidity, fault warnings and system alerts — are all available in one central location to provide access to needed information on mobile apps, via a Web browser or through text alerts.
In this video, Steve Pears, managing director of Rail for telent, discusses how telent is transforming its business with new services for the London Underground, such as automating manual processes, spotting equipment issues in real time before they cause service disruptions and tracking equipment performance to support infrastructure planning.
telent has won three prestigious five year contracts worth over £15million with the Highways Agency, to maintain critical roadside technology across the East, South East and M25 regions’ motorways and trunk roads.
