Amey will provide maintenance, repair and replacement services for the Council’s 15,000 street lights, 1,000 illuminated signs and traffic bollards, including a 24-hour emergency cover for any incidents on the road network.
The four-year contract started on 1st July 2017 and is worth more than £2m.
Amey has managed the street lighting service in East Renfrewshire since August 2012. The new contract continues Amey’s work to replace street lights with new LED lanterns, requiring work to upgrade cable networks.
“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.
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.”
Other Amey street lighting contracts include North Lanarkshire Council, Transport Scotland and Highways England, managing a total of over 600,000 street lights across Scotland and England.
