Siemens Mobility and WJ Group have agreed to collaborate to improve road safety and protect highway workers in the UK.

The two companies entered into an exclusive, long-term partnership to deliver systems for temporary automatic speed cameras at road works (TASCAR).

The TASCAR solution will be equipped with Siemens Mobility’s Home Office Type Approval (HOTA) approved SafeZone system with the Sicore II ANPR camera.

Once deployed, the system will help in enforcing speed limits, maintaining traffic flow and ensuring the safety of road workers.

The Sicore cameras, used in the TASCAR solution, have been designed to take high-quality images with number plate read accuracy. The cameras are capable of processing up to 2,500 fast-moving vehicles per lane per hour.

Siemens Mobility Intelligent Traffic Systems business UK managing director Wilke Reints said: “It was an easy decision to place our confidence in WJ’s contracting experience, resources and reputation for exceptional service delivery within the temporary traffic management sector.

“The partnership brings together the strength of two leaders in their respective markets and we are delighted to be supporting WJ with our intelligent highway infrastructure solutions. We look forward to working closely with them to safely deploy projects across the UK’s road network.”

The two companies will work together to ensure that the installation, validation and maintenance works are supported by an experienced team.

In May, Siemens Mobility was selected to deliver connected mobility infrastructure and software services for the Midlands Future Mobility (MFM) project.
