Amey has won a year’s contract extension with Inverclyde Council to repair and maintain street lights, road lighting and traffic sign lighting.
The company has managed street lighting maintenance for the council in Renfrewshire, Scotland, since January 2014.
A new contract was awarded to Amey in November 2020 following previous contracts to create a responsive service for local communities, as well as supporting the local authority’s plans to continuously review the energy efficiency of its street lighting.
Amey said the extension builds on the strong relationships and service delivery, enabling its teams to continue to maintain the council’s 13,000 street lights, 1,000 traffic signs and 600 items of ancillary electrical equipment.
Bruce Lunn, account manager for Amey, said: “Our long-term relationship with the council enables us to be responsive to the needs of local people.”
Councillor Michael McCormick, Inverclyde Council’s convener of environment and regeneration, said: “The partnership with Amey has proven to be a fruitful one providing first-class and more environmentally friendly lighting throughout Inverclyde.”
Amey operates street lighting services for several local authorities, including North Lanarkshire Council, East Renfrewshire Council, Transport Scotland, National Highways and several local authorities, managing at least 510,000 street lights, illuminated signs and bollards across the country.
