The RTM (Road Traffic Management) Group was established in 1985 to specialise in the implementation of traffic management schemes for road works on a national basis. With the acquisition of Amber Langis (Traffic Signals) in 2007, the reorganised business of AMBER-RTM now undertakes all types of traffic management including traffic signal set ups, lane closures on dual carriageways, mobile lane closures, tidal contra flows on motorways and the provision and installation of temporary crash barrier.
We are Quality Assured by SGS to ISO 9001 and accredited in accordance with Sector Scheme Document 12A/B/D Specification for Highway Works.
We currently employ all of our key staff including management, foreman and operatives. Our fleet of Vehicles is owned by the Company and include 7.5 tonne trucks; 12 tonne trucks; 18 tonne Impact Protection Vehicles and 3.5 tonne pick-ups. All of our vehicles comply with the requirements of the Temporary Traffic Management on High Speed Roads Good Working Practice Document.
We are continually seeking to improve the quality and performance of the service we provide and this is emphasized in the training and development of the staff.
Amber-RTM frequently provides advice to clients and can provide CAD drawings for specific schemes and non - standard signs can be manufactured from our own CAD facility in Leeds & London.
Health and Safety
The full services of SQES are available to Amber-RTM, which includes legal, personnel, health, safety and environmental issues. SQES have been appointed as the 'Competent Person' under the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999, to assist in applying the provisions of health and safety law and devising and applying protective measures. Traffic Management is an essential element of site safety and this is recognised in the Sector Scheme training and assessment.
In order to provide a more efficient service to our customers and to improve our own efficiency we have invested in Boxmatic's vehicle monitoring system. All of our vehicles are fitted with this tracking device, which can provide timed Journey and Vehicle Activity Reports. In order to comply with our QMS and the desire for continuous improvement we have developed a Customer Satisfaction Report. Reports are actioned by Contracts Managers and discussed at monthly Management Meetings.
A key aspect of our business has always been to establish long-term relationships with Contractors and Sub-contractors; this has resulted in repeat business and all parties benefiting from reduced costs and an increase in workload.
