SRL bags a new corporate partnership

07/10/2021

SRL Traffic Systems has signed an exclusive corporate partnership with traffic product development consultancy, Innovative Road Safety Solutions (IRSS), to support a complete decommission, installation and reactivation service.

Under the partnership's new Switching Service, the teams can quickly, cost-effectively and safely decommission and reactivate permanent traffic lights, while also installing temporary ones in a single service.

The junction at the A653 Dewsbury Road in Leeds, next to the Broadway pub

Specially trained SRL employees installing temporary traffic lights can switch off permanent signs using patented, high visibility PVC CoverMe Signal Bags, which allow the workers to safely cover up the lights from the ground using an extension pole and bungee cord.

This removes the danger of working from height and saves time and money.

On project completion, they access and inspect the permanent signal boxes before de-bagging and reactivation.

The partnership precludes the need for customers to hire dedicated traffic signal engineers to make separate site visits to switch permanent signs off and on and to bag them before roadworks commence.

Colas Group has already employed the service on a junction on Dewsbury Road into Leeds, part of the City Connect project.

Colas' Patrick Slicker said: 'SRL’s ability to decommission and bag-off permanent lights saves time and money and totally eradicates the working at height risk.'

In a joint statement, the managing director of SRL’s hire division, Malcolm Johnstone and IRSS director, Peter Hoban, said: 'Our new partnership enables us to promote the efficiency, cost-effectiveness and safety of roadwork projects across the UK and RoI. Initial customer feedback has been very strong indeed.'

Established in 1997, SRL offers a portfolio that includes VMS, CCTV and traffic and pedestrian signals and its products are available for sale and hire.

The company has ISO accreditations 9001 (quality management), 14001 (environmental management) and 45001 (occupational health and safety). It is the only ITS manufacturer available to customers on site 24/7, 365 days a year.

Peter Hoban established IRSS in 2019 following a 25-year career in the sale of road safety products to local authorities.
