Change in technology use and training reduces service strikes

As part of the Area 10 contract supported by Balfour Beatty and Mott MacDonald an improvement project was undertaken to reduce the amount of service strikes that were being realised on the scheme.

Following the trials the Area 10 team took the decision to purchase EZiCAT i750 models and deploy them across the contract. As part of the deployment 120 members of the team were trained in the correct use of the equipment.

The initiative has seen a significant reduction in service strikes with no recorded incidents whilst using the system.
