The UK Highways Agency awarded a contract to replace all the existing ERTs (Emergency Roadside Telephones) with the next generation 354 variant ERT on a national basis in more than 6,000 locations.
Kelly’s role under the contract entailed a number of works which included decommissioning the existing type 352 ERT; civil enabling works to facilitate the new installations; ducting and cabling installation, and installing the new variant unit type 354 ERT.
We carried out commissioning of the installed unit type 354; provided traffic management services for the project, and booked road space through the Highway Agency managing agents and TTROs. We forecast and requisitioned stock. And managed the web based real-time installation database to update the client of the project’s progress.
