Telent awarded National Highways contract extension for Digital Technology operation and management

Telent will continue to operate the digital connectivity network for National Highways and the Strategic Road Network (SRN) until 2027.

Telent has been working with National Highways to transform and operate the National Roads Telecommunications Service (NRTS) since 2018. During this time, a portfolio of digital platforms has been delivered to modernise the connectivity infrastructure, improve the reliability and operating performance across the network, and provide new innovative connectivity solutions, as foundations for better use of digital services in the future.

The contract supports National Highways’ Digital Road Strategy to further increase safety for road workers and users, while helping drivers and their passengers to travel with minimal delays.

The operation and management of NRTS by Telent connects over 36,000 services, including CCTV and video, information and communications systems, and traffic monitoring sensors, all of which enable National Highways to operate the Strategic Road Network.
