SWARCO Traffic Ltd has signed a new framework agreement with the Department for Infrastructure in Northern Ireland to provide traffic solutions and smart technologies throughout the country.
The new contract will see SWARCO supply all school signs and Vehicle Activated Signs (VAS), fully equipped with Wi-Fi accessibility.
According to the contract notice, the total value of the deal is £1.7m.
DfI Roads – a business unit within the Department for Infrastructure – will manage the signs via SWARCO’s intelligent Zephyr solution, which enables messages to be set from anywhere at any time, remotely.
Michael Irwin, general manager for SWARCO Traffic in Northern Ireland and RoI, said: ‘We have a longstanding relationship with DfI Roads, approaching a decade of supply of our reliable and innovative traffic technologies. This new framework will enable our successful partnership to grow even further.’
DfI Roads facilitates the safety of road users through the delivery of road maintenance services and the management and development of the transport network.
It also informs the Department's policy development process to ensure that measures to encourage safe and sustainable travel are practical and can be delivered.
