Jacobs Engineering Group has secured a four-year contract from Transport Infrastructure Ireland (TII) to offer road safety technical consultancy services across Ireland’s national road network.

The contract will see Jacobs undertake health and safety inspections on major road developments and traffic management sites.

"We look forward to continuing to closely support one of our key clients."

On this project, Jacobs’ main services will include monitoring of compliance with legislation, checking for guidelines adherence, reporting on persistent issues, and developing recommendations on such issues.

Jacobs and TII have worked in collaboration for several years, providing health and safety advisory services.

Jacob’s duties under the new contract will include providing temporary safety measures and other inspections, and advising TII as a single supplier.

Jacobs buildings and infrastructure senior vice-president Bob Duff said: "We have provided health and safety services to Transport Infrastructure Ireland since 2008 and are delighted to further develop our relationship and share our safety culture under this contract.

"We look forward to continuing to closely support one of our key clients as they seek to improve the standard of safety within the road construction sector in Ireland."
