  • Ronan Costello

    We would like to start off and wish you all a Happy and Prosperous New Year.   

    As part of our ongoing commitment to support our local communities we have agreed to sponsor the logistics of this walk which is to raise awareness of a new CIC (Community Interest Company) #FORRONAN which is set to become the legacy of the late RONAN COSTELLO, a young man who sadly passed away playing the game of RL for the Huddersfield academy.

    Ronan was a committed young person who enjoyed a challenge & always gave 100%. These qualities will be embedded into every event/challenge & project that hashtag#FORRONAN delivers.

    This challenge is no different and the 8 (which includes ex professional rugby league players and ex-servicemen) will set off on Friday 10th January and  venture coast to coast ON FOOT in under 3 days. They aim to cover over 125 miles travelling from Barrow-in-Furness on the west coast to the Saltburn Cliffs on the East side of the UK.

    The funds they raise will be used to help with the CIC set up costs & begin to build funds that will be used to offer young people in our community new experiences based on #FORRONAN core values:

  • The Wildlife Aid Foundation & Hedgehogs

    We were recently advised a client of ours, that one of their colleagues, Kate Woods, works tirelessly to raise money for the Wildlife Aid Foundation and is actually one of their ambassadors with a commitment to raise £10,000 per annum for the charity.  She has been extremely successful in her efforts and to date has raised in excess of £100,000 which is quite extraordinary. The Foundation is currently seeking to raise money to save hedgehogs from extinction.  We couldn’t believe the most quintessential British mammal faces extinction – but their numbers have dropped from 30 million in the 1950’s to less than a million today.  The Foundation hopes that by over wintering 100 hedgehogs in safety this year this could lead to an additional 35,000 hedgehogs by 2030. 

    We have made a small donation to support this cause and anyone else wanting to help save the British hedgehog can do the same by following this link;

  • Trussell Trust

    We had a collection last week of food in support of the Trussell Trust – a charity that runs food banks for people who are locked into poverty – be it homeless people or people trapped into the cycle of tax credits and low income.

  • Army Freedom Parade

    On Wednesday 3rd April 2019 we undertook the traffic management at the Army Freedom Parade for 2 Signal Regiment on behalf of York City Council.

    We worked closely with the Local Authority, Police and local businesses to ensure the event ran smoothly and all stakeholders were communicated with and kept informed on the build-up and throughout the event.

    The regiment was awarded the Freedom of the City in 2001 as recognition for it's work in protecting thousands of homes in the Leeman Road area of the City, during the disastrous floods that hit the city in 2000.

  • Flood risk reduction work at Stourton

    Today Centurion were pleased to welcome a visit from the Leader of Leeds City Council, Councillor Judith Blake and Deputy Leader Councillor John Lewis, together with a delegation from Leeds City Council and the Environment Agency. 

    The councillors were keen to learn of the Company’s experiences in the devastating Boxing Day floods of December 2015 and to understand how we coped at the time and the challenges faced recovering from the floods.  The delegation viewed photographs of the site under water and then toured the site to view the recent flood protection measures installed.  They were keen to explain some of the measures taken in the wider area to protect the city and businesses operating in the immediate area, which was very much appreciated.  

    It was a worthwhile visit for all involved and Centurion were also able to give an insight into the world of traffic management.

    Pictured are Council Leader Judith Blake, Deputy Council Leader John Lewis and Centurion Managing Director Ian Magrane.

  • Total Warrior 2018

  • 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.
