Back in 2009 Aone+, our sister company was awarded two additional areas, Area 7 and Area 12 under the MAC contract making a total of 33% of the UK's network to manage.

Covering Area 7 that compromises of 79km of Motorway and 428km of trunk roads in Nottingham, Leicester and the midlands area, the biggest area coverage in the UK. Along with this, Area 12 covering Leeds and North Yorkshire. We had two ongoing contracts that were extended making up the 33%, Area 10 covering Widnes and Manchester and Area 14 covering Newcastle and Northumberland.

This was the first time that the Highways' Agency had awarded this amount of network to one company. This was a mammoth task to mobilise the additional area's on the short space of time given. However, none of this would have been possible without the help and support from Traffic Labour Supplies. Area 7 has been the most demanding since dealing with the most severe winters seen for 31 years and sucessfully a year of planned works in 9 months.

Traffic Labour Supplies have supported Colas topping up our crews with high quality Lantra qualified Traffic Management operatives in all areas.These range from trainee operatives up to Traffic Safety Officers and with your newly developed training centre I've seen an even higher qulaity of trained operatives delivered.

Thankyou for your ongoing support and we look forward to working with Traffic Labour Supplies for many years to come.

Thank you for your support last week on the Thomas bow resurfacing works and a big thanks to Ryan and Brad who did a fantastic job. I have had very good feedback from my on-site supervisor about Ryan and Brad, so can you give them a big well done from me please. When we require your services again Ryan and Brad will be the first on the list if available.

Thanks again for your support.

Just wanted to say a big thank you to Garon and his team on Thursday night. There was a traffic accident on the entrance to Serlby Park and it looked like we might have had to call the race off.

However, Garon and his team cleared the cars out of the way and made the area safe so we could hold the race. This was very much appreciated by all riders taking part on the night.

We have had good feedback from the surfacing team regarding Sundays works.

The crew couldn’t have been more helpful I am told.

Please pass our thanks onto the crew and we would we be happy to have them back again.

I am just coming up to my first Twelve months in the TM Industry having started with TLS upon recommendation on the 1st February 2016. I want to take this opportunity to say thank you for all the hard work shown by TLS in all aspects of job enrichment. I have found TLS to be totally professional from the very first day of contact and have no doubts that this will long continue. The one day high speed course was delivered answering all questions asked. I left with a qualification and had a good overall understanding of Industry. I was given all the information needed to keep myself and my colleagues safe and the confidence in starting within a new industry.

The next stage was working with the contracts team, who sourced and did everything possible to give me work where and when I wanted. I have to take my hat off to you as its not always easy to find work, but in my experience when embargoes were in place, I still had the option to work at other workplaces which was great when work is limited.

I would also like to say a special thank you to the payroll team who have been there at every turn to ensure the wage structure has been paid fully on time and helped me with the understanding of the different pay systems to suit my needs.

Overall I have found everyone involved with TLS to be totally professional. I am convinced that TLS is by far the agency leading from the front and not resting on its laurels, but striving to better it's relationship with its partners and customers alike. Lastly, Paul I would like to say thank you to you for your honesty and hard work, you have always answered your phone or got back to me as soon as possible with a can do attitude and solved every issue I have for which I am truly grateful.

TLS Partner

I have used the services of Traffic Labour Supplies for many years. I have found their service to be honest and efficient throughout this time.

To date TLS have given me a very competitive and efficient service. I have used them as my main supplier of skilled traffic management labour and had no reason to change this. TLS have helped our traffic management division to grow and in turn help me commit to major framework contracts that we would have had to refuse without their help.

I encourage a partnering philosophy when it comes down to working with my suppliers and TLS have been excellent with communication and transparency. I would not hesitate in recommending TLS to anyone who requires their service."

"This email is just to commend their work ethic, professionalism and dependability. I was extremely impressed with them, and none of them let me down once throughout the duration of the works. They all picked up the work quickly and adapted and coped very well with what I asked them to carry out. Their communication skills and attitude were second to none, and I wouldn’t hesitate in working with any of them again.

I would be please ask you to inform them of this formal appreciation, and would like to hear back from yourselves once this has been done."

I was on site this morning with Anwar and I was very impressed with him. He was on time, in clean PPE and was fully aware of his role.

It was a pleasure and a nice way to start the morning.
