We have over a decades worth of experience at delivering traffic management solutions for utilities and projects within our fine capital city. We have worked with all of the TFL authorities and highways agencies across the London region to deliver safe, precise and cost effective operations.

Wait here traffic management

As a business we understand the role we can play in the global and local efforts to slow down the impacts of global warming. With London at the forefront in regards to improving air quality we have invested in the latest temporary traffic signals equipment powered by solar. This latest technology fits our ISO14001 Environmental accreditation status and allows us to reduce the number of trips throughout your project. Saving you money and saving us from pumping out emissions uneccesarily.

We pride ourselves in combining a safety first mentality with cost effective methods to create a perfect solution to any project. This is one of the many reasons we retain such a high percentage of our client base year on year. As our clients have grown so have we, this approach has enabled us to keep the control and quality aspects which can sometimes be lost when growth is more important than service.

We have the infrastructure in place to be able to react to both planned and emergency works and have existing contracts in place supporting utilities companies involving  Electrical, Gas, Water, Fibre optic lines and Arboriculture amongst many construction or highway based companies.

TMO Highways deliver professional traffic management services all around London that prioritises the safety of your workforce, the road users and our staff. Get in touch today to discuss your London project and explore how we can contribute to its success.
