The diverse operational technologies covered by the framework include roadside devices and systems – for example, variable message signs, signals, emergency roadside telephones, CCTV cameras, and vehicle detection and digital enforcement cameras.
Tim Myall, Senior Business Manager for Civil Aerospace, Rail and Roads at Frazer-Nash said:
“As a supplier on Lot 5 of the framework, Frazer-Nash Consultancy Limited will be offering operational technology consultancy support to National Highways, using its specialist technical expertise and extensive cross-industry experience to help it overcome complex technology challenges, whilst meeting relevant standards and regulatory requirements.
“Our systems-led approach allows us to ensure we really understand our clients’ needs, and to create a bespoke delivery plan collaboratively with them. We’re really pleased that we’ll have the opportunity to use this approach to provide solutions to National Highways, adding value to support its priority commitments to safety, customers and delivery.”
