Telent and Thales join forces to deliver for the UK Transport Sector
Combined UK capabilities, digital solutions and international high-speed rail experience that will deliver better outcomes for Britain’s passengers, operators and transport infrastructure owners
Critical Transport digital infrastructure experts Telent and global technology leader Thales will be working together to cooperate on bidding for and delivering digital communications solutions for the UK Transport sector with an initial focus on High-Speed Rail.
Investment in the UK’s Transport infrastructure is a key policy priority for the UK government due to its ability to deliver greener, faster journeys for passengers while driving economic growth across the country.
The collaboration between Telent and Thales developed from a shared passion of embracing technology to drive the transformation of the transport sector and unlock the benefits that major infrastructure projects can bring to communities up and down the country.
To maximise the economic benefit to the UK, the transport sector needs to develop the local skills and capabilities needed to deliver major infrastructure projects, such as HS2 and Northern Powerhouse Rail, that will transform passenger journeys, provide career opportunities and underpin the government’s levelling up agenda.
The Telent and Thales collaboration combines proven ability to deliver flagship global transport projects, including international high-speed rail and UK experience in delivering critical digital infrastructure projects. Both companies are committed to building a legacy, through local job creation and investment.
