WJ extends road marking deal in Leicestershire

Grant Prior 3 years ago WJ Group

WJ has been awarded a new road marking deal with Leicestershire County Council to continue its work in the area.

WJ has been serving Leicestershire’s roads since 2004 and the latest contract is for another two-year term with the option to extend to five years.

It covers road markings and stud maintenance on both surface dressing and new surfacing.

Andy Stubbs WJ South Managing Director said:“This was one of the first contracts I secured when I started almost 17 years ago and I’m pleased to see WJ’s continued success and commitment both to Leicestershire County Council and the local community.

“We invest a significant amount in the area and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future”.

The WJ-Leicestershire CC partnership will see the integration of WJ’s bespoke software system with the counties CONFIRM asset management system.

One aspect of the integration is live tracking and reporting, so Leicestershire Country Council can see when WJ operatives arrive to a job, whether it be road marking or stud installation/removal, how the progress of the job is going, and when the operatives have left site without relying on a single phone call, email or other form of person-to-person communication.


Chris Green, Head of Highways Service Delivery said: “WJ have provided an excellent service to the County over many years and we are pleased that the beneficial relationship will continue.

“The innovative forward thinking solutions developed in collaboration with us alongside their community centred approach were a significant factor in the evaluation of the tender”.
