City Traffic Management (City TM) has struck a deal with Imperial Vehicle Hire for the supply of 40 traffic management vehicles.
The first of the £335k order based on the Ford Transit 350 L3 have been delivered, with the remainder due within weeks.
The vehicles, built to City TM's specification by CPD Bodies Limited, are equipped with a fall arrest system, 6 LED strobes, 2 LED work lights and the chassis have been extended and had a 915mm solid tail lift fitted.
Apart from a full Chapter 8 spec, the vehicles also have front and rear dash cams, reverse camera mirror mounted, and another camera to record the work area of the vehicle.
Mat Field, managing director of City TM, said: “City TM is pleased to receive the first vans of a batch of nearly 50, ordered through Imperial Vehicle Group.
“Imperial are our choice of vehicle supplier due to their continued excellent service and “can do” attitude in servicing our needs as a 24/7 business.”
Paul Tuszynski, group sales and operations manager for Imperial, said: “It’s a pleasure to be working with City TM and discovering the specifications of these vehicles which make their offering to councils and road contractors unique.”
Glenn Rust, managing director of the IVH has been working with City TM since its inception. He said: “Our relationship goes back to their first hire in 2014 and we’ve worked together to fine-tune our offering to match their exacting standards.
“We are delighted to have been able to exceed the demands of City TM, something we were able to do because of our close relationship.”
IVH consists of Imperial Vehicle Hire and Nationwide Fleet.
The vehicles will be covering jobs around the M25 and the home counties, said City TM.
