Cubic is celebrating the signing of a landmark contract with Transport Scotland here at the 2015 ITS World Congress, to support delivery of the Traffic Scotland service. The deal extends Cubic’s 20 year history of delivering services for Transport Scotland.
“We are extremely proud to continue this great partnership with Transport Scotland and look forward to working together to deliver a safe, efficient, cost-effective and sustainable transport system for the benefit of Scotland’s travellers,” said Chris Bax, managing director of Cubic ITMS, a subsidiary of Cubic Transportation Systems.
Traffic Scotland provides real time traffic, roadworks and event information for travellers in Scotland, via the Traffic Scotland website and other local media. Cubic delivered Transport Scotland’s core traffic management system in the mid-1990s, and has since maintained and developed it in line with technology advances.
The new contract, to be delivered by Cubic with technology partner IBI Group, will support future delivery and development of the Traffic Scotland service.
“The Cubic Transportation Systems bid showed a clear focus on delivery while presenting the best value for the public purse,” said Transport Scotland’s head of network operations Hugh Gillies. “We look forward to working together to enhance Traffic Scotland services.”
