Lendlease awarded Intelligent Transport Systems contract in Victoria

  • 23 May 2018

Roadside technology, known as ITS or intelligent transport systems, includes assets such as electronic message signs, vehicle detection loops, tidal flow systems, traffic lights, CCTV cameras and variable speed limit signs. The systems control traffic flows, allowing traffic to be monitored and keeping motorists safe and informed.

This is an 8-year management and maintenance contract, with the opportunity for two 2-year extensions, awarded to our Services business. The scope of works also includes the upgrading of the VicRoads ITS and communications network and the provision of a Network Operations Centre.

Intelligent Transport Systems are a crucial part of Australia’s infrastructure; assisting with maintaining road safety, managing traffic flow, providing more consistent travel times and improving communication with drivers about speed, lane availability and changed traffic conditions. 

General Manager, Transport Infrastructure, Eckart Schlotfeldt said: “We look forward to collaborating with VicRoads on best practice ITS asset maintenance to deliver a safe, efficient and high-quality road network for customers in Victoria.” 

Con Kourtis, General Manager Telecommunications said, “We look forward to maintaining this critical communications and ITS network, that will provide continuous traffic flow for all Victorians.”
