  • Leeds Bubble Rush 2017

    On Saturday 22nd April 2017 - Jennifer, Tracey, Helen and Gemma in our Finance department are taking part in the Leeds 5k Bubble Rush for St Gemma's Hospice, where along the 5k course there will be numerous different coloured bubble stations blowing out 30 cubic metres a minute of coloured bubbles making a 4ft bubble wall.

    Last year's event was attended by over 3000 people and raised nearly £100,000, so the Finance team are hoping to add to this and raise as much money as possible. If you would like to help sponsor them - please visit their Just Giving page here www.justgiving.com/Centurionfinance

  • Conflict Resolution Training

    Conflict resolution training was provided to our employees to help identify and deal with physical and verbal abuse in roadside situations. The course provided for our employees by RAM Training and was well received by the employees who took part. 

    The course content involved realistic scenario based training exercises, with two main areas of training conflict resolution and breakaway techniques. With conflict on-site unfortunatley becoming a more regular occurence, we decided to go down this route to prepare our workforce for the everyday challenegs that may arise.

  • Quality Management

    ISO 9001:2015

    The new standard was introduced in September 2015 and companies have a 3-year transition period to convert all their original policies and procedures to meet the new standard specifications. As a company, we decided that rather than going through the re-certification audit for the renewal of the 2008 standard, we would concentrate our efforts on achieving the new standard. This involved the task of a complete overhaul so that the January 2016 audits could be undertaken against the new standard.

    Centurion had held the ISO 9001:2008 standard since January 2012, but now holds the new standard of ISO 9001:2015

    This process was 5 days of audit by UKAS accredited body SGS(UK) Ltd, which resulted in no non-conformities on both the certification and surveillance. Following this audit, the only observations were of a positive nature.

  • Flooding

    Unfortunately our Head Office in Leeds has been flooded over the Christmas period. As a result, our phones and email are not working properly. We are working hard to get back up and running, but in the meantime if you have any urgent queries please contact our temporary number 07960 781269.

    Please note that this will not affect any works that have already been booked in.

  • Macmillan Coffee Morning

    All at Centurion would like to say a big thank you to everyone that supported our coffee morning in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support. With the help of everyone we raised £161.00 for Macmillan Cancer Support!

    We would like to say a huge thanks to everyone that baked and volunteered their time on the day. All your help was very much appreciated and contributed to such a great event.

  • All moved in

    At the end of June 2015 Centurion Traffic Management moved its Head Office into a purpose built site just off the M1 in Leeds.

    The new location in Stourton, Leeds will accommodate the growth of the company, providing a stronger presence in the north while continuing to build on the connection the head office has with the rest of the company’s regional depots and offices.

    Commenting on the move, Ian Magrane, Director said: “We have had a number of new people join the team recently to help progress the company forward. The new offices, depot and yard space substantially increases the amount of working space we have, and they also provide a much cleaner, more modern working environment. The links we have to the nearby motorways and the centre of Leeds were also a major consideration when picking this site and we are delighted to be finally in”.

  • The move begins...

    Following our decision to move to new premises at the start of the year, the process has now kicked on a gear as the site begins to take shape. Moving from our long term home in Wakefield has been a difficult decision, but we believe the site in Stourton, Leeds will be able to offer us a much better environment for our employees while retaining the opportunity for future growth.

    As the new home for our head office was just a piece of land, seeing the buildings being erected and the yard taking shape is a culmination of a lot of hard work coming to fruition.

    Commenting on the move, Ian Magrane, Director, said: “We have had a number of new people join the team recently and the new space will be able to accommodate this and give us the opportunity to continue the recent growth of the company. We genuinely believe that the move will give us the ability to not only continue the quality service we provide to existing clients, but also give us a sound footing to be able to expand going forward”

  • IPV

    Impact protection vehicles are a vital tool when installing traffic management systems, not only on motorways but also on low speed dual carriageways and single carriageways dependent on the risks that are raised during the risk assessment process.

    On September 25th we took delivery of our brand new IPV, an investment in the future and safety of our workforce, clients and the general public.

    We understand that the safety of our workforce, clients and the general public is vital so we feel the investment was worth every penny.

  • Dawlish

    Centurion's emergency response with traffic management equipment and trained operatives, working in teams over 24/7, is assissting Network Rail in repairing serious damage to the sea wall and railway in Dawlish, Devon.

    The damage was caused by the much publicised storms in the south west of England and will take many weeks to reconstruct. Concrete has to be pumped over a considerable distance from the nearest usable road. The traffic management is in place to enable the safe entry and exit of a large amount of heavy supply vehicles and plant in order to safeguard site staff and pedestrians, whilst ensuring all roads are kept open for the safe passage of residential and through traffic.
