Surrey County Council has awarded a new seven-year parking and traffic enforcement contract to Marston Holdings Ltd.
The contract will mean that parking and traffic enforcement will be operated in partnership between the council and the private company to help the local authority to achieve some of its transport ambitions.
Kevin Deanus, cabinet member for highways and community resilience, said: “The new contract will mean that Surrey County Council can more directly and consistently manage on street parking enforcement across the county, helping to tackle inconsiderate parking and make parking restrictions more effective.
“In addition the contract will allow the installation of traffic enforcement cameras on Surrey’s roads that can be used to help reduce congestion and improve road safety.
“Through the procurement process, Marstons demonstrated an excellent understanding of our requirements and what is needed to operate a successful and cost effective enforcement service to benefit Surrey residents.”
Marston Holdings recently won a CiTTi Award for its work on congestion reduction with Lewisham Council.
