Traffic technology specialist Dynniq has been awarded a five year contract to deliver a programme of renewals and upgrades across the City of York’s existing traffic signal equipment.
The Traffic Signals Asset Renewal (TSAR) programme, drawn up by the City of York Council, aims to ensure that traffic technology assets in the city continue to offer a safe and reliable service The programme will involve installation of new signals, LED upgrades, integration of new technologies, and ongoing maintenance. Dynniq – a member of ITS (UK) – is set to replace around 60 traffic signal junctions and crossings with completely new equipment to a unique York specification. City of York Council transport systems manager Darren Capes said: “I am very pleased to be working with Dynniq to deliver the Traffic Signals Asset Renewal programme for York.
“As with many local authorities, we face the problem of maintaining ageing traffic signal equipment in a cost effective way.
“The programme Dynniq are now delivering will see around 60 traffic signal sites across the City completely rebuilt to latest standards and will increase reliability, allow the introduction of new technologies and reduce maintenance costs over the coming years. Installations will utilise the latest traffic controllers from the Dynniq PTC-1 family and LED signal heads. By introducing LED signals the council is expected to realise significant cost savings on its energy bill and a notable reduction in CO2 emissions. In addition, the inclusion of above ground video vehicle detection will make for safer crossings and better detection with minimal installation disruption and costs.
