East Renfrewshire Council has awarded Amey with a new street lighting maintenance contract which will entail the upgrade, maintenance and repair its lights.
Amey will provide maintenance, repair and replacement services for the Council’s 15,000 street lights
, 1,000 illuminated signs
and traffic bollards,
as well as a 24-hour emergency cover
for any incidents on the road network. The contract will be worth over £2 million
and will take place over the next four years.
Amey has managed the street lighting service in East Renfrewshire
since August 2012. The new contract will consist of replacing street lights with new LED lanterns, which are more efficient and cost effective
for the council. Amey has maintained street lighting in the area for the last five years and has offered an excellent level of service, given that this requires sophisticated civil infrastructure work to upgrade existing cable networks.The award of this contract strengthens the services offered locally
as well as the investment in local infrastructures
for the community.
“Amey has maintained street lighting in the area for the last five years and in that period we have received an excellent level of service,” said the council’s environment director, Andrew Cahill.
In addition, James Haluch, managing director of Amey’s highways business unit, said: “This contract win will enable us to further strengthen our local knowledge, and alongside East Renfrewshire Council continue investing in local infrastructure to benefit local people and communities.”
Amey also carries out street lighting maintenance for North Lanarkshire Council, Transport Scotland
and Highways England,
operating more than 600,000 street lighting systems
across Scotland and England.
