Transport Scotland has awarded Mobility IBI Egis (MOBIIE) a five-year contract to operate the Traffic Scotland National Control Centre.
The company, a joint venture between IBI Group and Egis, will also manage the network of inter-city motorways in Scotland.
Elements of the deal include the provision of traffic data management and road network performance with data from over 3,500 monitoring units, and the communication of traffic and travel information through radio, digital and social media channels.
The contract notice sets the value of the deal at £48 million.
Scotland’ Minister for Transport Graeme Day said: “The Traffic Scotland service plays a vital role for people using our trunk roads, closely monitoring the network and providing key travel information for road users 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
“This new contract will ensure Traffic Scotland continues to support the safe, efficient and resilient operation of Scotland’s trunk roads, and I look forward to MOBIIE building on the success of the service in recent years.”
