The Scotland government has selected global engineering and development consultancy Mott MacDonald for the development of its transport system.

During the five-year agreement, Mott will provide intelligent transport systems (ITS) technical advisory services to the country’s Transport Scotland Network Operations Framework.

Mott will also help Transport Scotland in the areas of ITS infrastructure support, ITS development, control centre building design and delivery as well as website development.

During the consultation period, Transport Scotland could use the construction expertise of Mott without inviting tender for any individual projects.
