ITS (UK) member Dynniq is set to deliver a range of technology on Highways England’s motorway network in the South West after winning a place on its new Construction Work Framework for the region.
The company has secured the sole position in Lot 6 of the framework, which covers technology.
This comes as Highways England introduces its new asset delivery arrangements in the South West, which went live at the beginning of this month. It now has direct responsibility for managing both routine maintenance and the delivery of capital renewal and improvement schemes in the region.
The South West region comprises Areas 1 and 2 and is the largest Highways England operating area, covering 11% of the strategic road network and totalling 230 miles from Cheltenham to Penzance.
The Construction Work Framework is structured to enable key delivery partners to work together in developing schemes, providing infrastructure and commissioning technology in a safe, efficient and cost effective manner.
Commenting on its appointment to the framework Dynniq’s operations director Richard Bevins said: “This framework enables Dynniq to further demonstrate its approach to delivering state of the art technology on the high speed network.
“Working from existing service centres with an experienced and trained team of engineers, a strong supply chain and proactive approach to safety, we will ensure that Highways England’s forward programme of works can be met on time and to budget.”
The technology being installed covers the full range of field based solutions from Highways England’s portfolio, including message signs, incident detection, CCTV, traffic signals and weather systems.
Dynniq will construct new sites, chambers and ducting; install and test the technology; handover to maintenance; and operate with a principal contractor team structure.
