Approval to Spend for the UTMC General Traffic Signal Refurbishment Scheme.

The proposed scheme comprises refurbishment of traffic signals equipment at various sites across the city. Older traffic signal equipment becomes unsupported and the frequency of faults increases. Refurbishing the equipment enables newer technology to be implemented which results in more efficient operation both in terms of energy consumption and delay to road users. It also enables greater benefits to be realised from wider investment programmes.



The Chief Officer Highways and Transportation has:

a)  Noted the contents of this report; and

b)  Approved spending of £600,000 (inclusive of all works costs, fees and legal costs), from the Local Transport Plan Transport Policy Capital Programme for the purposes of the refurbishing existing ageing traffic signal equipment as part of the UTMC General Traffic Signal Refurbishment Scheme 2021/22.
