As the leading supplier and service provider of traffic technology in the UK, and with the growing number of civil contracts now including infrastructure works and orders for traffic equipment and systems, Siemens is ideally placed to work closely with developers and construction companies across the UK.
From consultancy services to long-term maintenance support, we can offer a ‘one stop’ solution including innovation, design, manufacture, product, communications, installation, operation and service.
Civil contracting customers selecting Siemens can expect to benefit from unrivalled support and advice from the company on all traffic or related enquiries as well as ‘early contractor involvement’, competitive rates and service delivery. Importantly, when tendering for any future business, Siemens can demonstrate to civil contracting customers a proven record of working with traffic technology.
In Birmingham, we work with leading UK public services provider Amey, as part of the £2.7bn highways partnership with Birmingham City Council. The Birmingham Highways Maintenance and Management Service consists of upgrading and maintaining the city’s road network for the next 25 years. The programme includes major improvements to traffic signals and management systems by Siemens.
As part of the contract, Siemens maintains traffic signals, variable message signs, car park guidance signs, warning signs, and outstation transmission units for the operation of urban traffic control and network data gathering.
A major contract to design and upgrade a busy roundabout in Chester and install extra low voltage traffic signal and pedestrian crossing equipment is due for completion by Siemens in 2011. The new scheme to help increase road capacity at Boughton Heath forms part of major road alterations and construction work by civil engineers A.E.Yates on behalf Cheshire West and Chester Council.
The highly, complex layout of the new installation at Boughton Heath has been designed to deal with future demand generated by new local housing developments and features two back-up power supply systems ensuring uninterrupted operation of the traffic signals.
As part of the £100m upgrade of the historic Blackpool Tramway, Siemens was awarded a significant contract to provide design services, undertake junction upgrades and supply Extra Low Voltage (ELV) signals.
Initially, Siemens carried out design services work on approximately 16 junction upgrades from minor modifications to full renewals followed by the supply of the company’s latest development, a dedicated ELV tram signal head, together with the installation of priority signals at highway junctions to improve journey times.
Many civil contracting companies already benefit from working closely with Siemens including Birse Civils. Both Siemens and Birse Civils have enjoyed a successful partnership over many years which has been particularly strong in the South East, where our combined team have been able to present a number of value adding solutions to clients. Schemes where Siemens has provided support includes the A228 West Malling bypass, M20 Junction 4 signals upgrade and East Hall Farm signalised bus lane. More recently, Siemens has supported Birse with Phase 1 of its Sadler’s Farm scheme for Essex County Council.
