Amey has renewed its contract with East Renfrewshire Council to upgrade, maintain and repair street lights for the local council.
The company’s street lighting team has managed the service in East Renfrewshire since August 2012.
In 2017, Amey secured a four-year contract to continue managing the service and more recently won a three-year deal to carry on providing 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.
Under the new deal, which runs until June 2024, the company will continue replacing street lights with more efficient and cost-effective LED lanterns, including civil infrastructure work to upgrade existing cable networks.
Kenny Kerr, business director at Amey, said: “This contract win highlights the fantastic relationship we have with the local authority and is a testament to the hard work and expertise we have in our street lighting teams to deliver an outstanding service for our client.”
James Adams, the council’s contract manager, added: “East Renfrewshire Council is pleased to continue our relationship with Amey for a further three to four years on the new street lighting maintenance contract.”
Amey’s team uses in-house design and technology capabilities to protect the environment by reducing energy consumption and carbon emissions and maintenance costs for customers when undertaking investing and maintaining street lighting infrastructure. The company operates street lighting services for a number of local authorities including Wakefield and Manchester, North Lanarkshire, and Walsall.
