Two of the UK’s leading suppliers of traffic control management systems have been awarded places on the Crown Commercial Service’s Traffic Management Technology 2 (TMT2) agreement, which enables the supply and installation of traffic technology equipment and services for use by the country’s public sector organizations.
The TMT2 agreement provides public sector organizations, including Highways England (HE), devolved administrations, local transport authorities, and Transport for London (TfL), with access to a wide range of traffic management technology products, solutions and services, including traffic signals, and parking and access control systems.
Clearview Intelligence has been successfully awarded places under Lots 1, 2, 4, 5, 7, 13, 14 and 15, covering: traffic signal junctions, controlled pedestrian crossings and ramp metering, traffic monitoring and traffic enforcement cameras, variable message signs (VMS), parking and access control systems, urban traffic management control (UTMC) and common database systems, ancillary roadside equipment, and intelligent transport systems (ITS), all in isolation or as a combined. Use of the NEC3 suite of contracts to access the agreement is anticipated to make transacting simpler and more efficient for all involved parties. NEC is a division of Thomas Telford, the commercial arm of the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE).
“Being on the framework opens up great opportunities to extend existing collaborations, and create strong new relationships with key delivery partners and operators,” explained Nick Lanigan, managing director of Clearview. “Whether you’re from Highways England, a local authority, or a private operator, all road network managers ultimately want the same thing: smarter, safer and more efficient roads. Our portfolio of award winning road marking, sensing and intelligence solutions fits perfectly with this goal, as they are proven to reduce congestion, enhance safety, and influence driver behavior, and we look forward very much to replicating this success through projects and schemes offered via the TMT2 framework.”
Leading technology company Telent has been awarded a place on all 15 Lots of the TMT2 agreement for the supply of a wide range of traffic management technology products and professional services. Telent’s success across the diverse Lot structure highlights the range of ITS products and services it can offer, and also the strong partnerships it already has in place with key suppliers.
As well as its use by central and local government organizations, the TMT2 agreement can also be used right across the UK public sector including, health, education, emergency services, defense, and not-for-profit organizations. An online catalog is available for the direct purchase of a range of fixed price products and services, and use of the NEC3 suite of contracts speeds up transactions.
Phil De Silva, general manager of Telent’s traffic business, commented, “We’re thrilled to have been awarded places across the whole TMT2 agreement, and are looking forward to continuing our work with local authorities and other public sector organizations, sharing our experience and knowledge to develop traffic technology solutions that will benefit communities throughout the country.”
