TOBCO Receives Formal Prequalification by TFNSW for the Installation of Traffic Signal and Its Systems in NSW

TOBCO is proud to announce its new status as prequalified TCS contractor in NSW, having recently been awarded the formal TFNSW prequalification for Traffic Signal and ITS systems (TS02) installations. As stated on the Transport for NSW website, the purpose of the Prequalification Scheme classifies contractors according to technical and managerial expertise, financial capacity and previous performance. This means TOBCO will continue to reap the rewards of its already successful role as turnkey road maintenance and traffic signal contractors in NSW.

This major milestone is an integral step towards TOBCO’s continued expansion, allowing it to build upon an already diverse portfolio of capabilities in the fields of Civil and Electrical Infrastructure. TOBCO holds a broad range of prequalifications and accreditations in the Electrical Industry; the company also boasts TFNSW for Roadworks R2, Bridge Works B2 and Traffic Control Category G for RMS (Road Maintenance) contracts in NSW

During the past six months, TOBCO has successfully completed its trial Traffic Control Signal (TCS) site at the Wiseman Ferry Road intersection and at Pacific Highway northbound on-ramps at Kariong, NSW. The latter works were part of the Kariong to Somersby road upgrade, a huge undertaking for our client, Fulton Hogan, with whom TOBCO were delighted to join forces. Traffic light installation companies such as TOBCO, who hold multiple Transport for NSW prequalifications, have the expertise, the network, and the experience to tender for ever-more complex road maintenance contracts with confidence. This latest acquisition adds the title of prequalified TCS contractors to an already impressive list.


TOBCO has become a highly successful traffic signal installation contractor in Sydney and state-wide thanks to its long-term position within the Civil and Electrical Infrastructure sector. Director Glen O’Brien is delighted with the latest addition, stating, “Entry to the Traffic Signal sector in NSW was an easy decision for us as we are constantly delivering works for and around signalised intersections with Ausgrid and Endeavour Energy. TOBCO has undertaken the installation of over 400 multi-function & Smart poles across Sydney; many of these have involved traffic signal sites (TCS). Once upon a time, we had to subcontract all the TCS work out, but now, with our prequalification, we can follow our principals of always self-performing work and provide some pretty unique capabilities for our clients, offering all assets relocations within a project. We have the civil resources in-house to deliver complex footing and trench infrastructure in brown field environments, along with the electricians to undertake the complex commissioning. We are extremely proud of the site team and management involved in successfully delivering our first trial site, fully self-performing these works. We look forward to the future of TOBCO and the growth of our TCS business in NSW”.

TOBCO is refusing to rest on its laurels and will be working hard in the upcoming years to grow the NSW traffic control contractor side of the business and continue as an innovative, self-performing RMS contractor. We aim to ensure TOBCO remains one of the strongest performers within its five core business units well into the future.
