Telvent has received a contract from the Washington State Department of Transportation to provide toll collection systems on the SR520 bridge in Seattle, US.

IT Company Telvent is expected to implement an Open Road Tolling System based on its SmartMobility™ Tolling management solution for highway and tolls in the city.

The project is expected to be federally funded under the Lake Washington Congestion Management Program, which currently operates a series of improvement projects on I-90 and SR 520.

The tolling system is expected to improve traffic conditions, increase driver safety and allow accurate and reliable toll operations.

The project is also intended to help drivers to journey at free flow speeds and reduce traffic jams and greenhouse gas emissions.
