Costain, the smart infrastructure solutions company, has won a £2m consultancy programme management contract to deliver Bradford Council’s Smart Street Lighting project, which will involve the replacement of 59,000 lights and 17,000 lampposts across the city over a period of four years.
Costain, the smart infrastructure solutions company, is supporting the Future Generations Leadership Academy (FGLA).
Costain has begun installing smart infrastructure on the 300km Midlands Future Mobility test environment. Spanning from Coventry to Birmingham the route will be set to trial connected and autonomous vehicles with a view to making UK roads safer and allowing for more predictable goods delivery and journey times.
