Transport Scotland has agreed on a five-year deal estimated at £47 million with Cubic Transportation for the delivery of ICT systems under the Traffic Scotland Contract (TSSC).

The agency said the company will support the Traffic Scotland service for the management of the country’s trunk road network.

This relies on intelligent transport systems, web based information systems, supporting ICT and IP communications to collect and distribute real time traffic information.

The actual value of the contract, which includes options for two one-year extensions, will depend on the volume of works ordered.

This is the second major contract in the past 12 months for ICT infrastructure to support the management of Scotland’s roads: in December 2021 Transport Scotland awarded Mobility IBI Egis a five-year deal to support the Traffic Scotland National Control Centre.

 Cubic Solutions provides a range of services include intelligent traffic management systems, fare collection and revenue management, and road user charging.
