Lagan Operations & Maintenance adds six Mercedes-Benz Sprinters to fleet

3 Mercedes-Benz Lagan

Traffic management specialist Lagan Operations & Maintenance has added six Mercedes-Benz Sprinters to its traffic solutions division.

The Sprinter 313 CDI Long chassis cabs are based at the company’s depot in East Kilbride, from where they are now working on road maintenance projects across Scotland.

They were supplied by the fleet department at the Glasgow branch of Central Belt Dealer Western Commercial.

They have dropside bodies by Dean Plant Hire, of Bathgate, to Lagan Operations & Maintenance’s own design – the specification includes steps to access the rear of the platform, and systems to protect staff who are working at height.

Each vehicle also has cameras to both sides, and the rear, with full colour screens on the dashboards.

George Miller, area manager for Lagan Operations & Maintenance, said: “Although this operation only began around 18 months ago, my own experience of traffic management work goes back over 15 years.

“These vehicles are out in all weathers with the lights and beacons on, often for 12 hours at a time, so safety and comfort for our hard-working operatives are key considerations.”
