Motorway and road network management
We can fully integrate control room operations, harnessing a range of subsystems, delivering specific traffic, environmental and infrastructure services, and scaling our solutions to meet individual clients’ needs.
Serco Transport Systems can integrate with existing and new facilities, providing operators with comprehensive decision support and combining all information within a single, common operator interface.
Traffic flow and driver safety traffic incident management
Serco can integrate major arterial roads with smaller city centre streets. Previous projects have included the provision of smooth and safe flow of traffic across the Shenzhen Western Corridor connecting Hong Kong with mainland China. We have also provided active traffic management by using our expertise in enforcement and traffic technology to manage roads assets and reduce congestion.
We can also implement and maintain a variety of systems for tunnels. We can put in place the technology to support drivers and reduce the impact of accidents.
Traffic congestion management
Serco has developed the electronic service delivery for abnormal loads system (ESDAL) to help road authorities and the police to manage abnormal load movements with minimum disruption and risk to infrastructure.
We are vendor neutral and can recommend and integrate the technology best suited to the needs of each particular road authority. We also support our clients to evolve infrastructure as their needs and the availability of technology changes.
Traffic information and signalling systems
Serco created travel-time variable message signs (TTVMS) and the public Traffic England 2 website, allowing travellers to make informed choices. We operate our BIAS bus information and signalling system in order to provide real-time passenger information to travellers. We use GPS to track bus movements, giving late running vehicles priority.
