Conduent Transportation has implemented a speed and red-light camera programme to improve traffic safety on the island nation of Cyprus.
The company is installing 110 camera systems - 90 fixed units at 30 locations plus 20 mobile camera units - to enforce the traffic regulations and monitor the use of seat belts and motorcycle helmets.
The Republic of Cyprus government aims to cut road fatalities and serious injuries by 50% by 2030.
Project partners include Brink's Cyprus and Vitronic, as well as local engineering and telecommunications companies.
“Improving public safety on the roads of Cyprus is a key priority, and we’re pleased to join with Conduent to initiate the first phase of this programme,” said Yiannis Karousos, Minister of Transport, Communications and Works for the Republic of Cyprus.
Conduent says it supports one out of every four US state and local automated enforcement programmes, and says these can reduce speeding and crashes, while helping agencies to more efficiently enforce traffic laws.
In 2021, Conduent expanded its road usage charging business in the UK with a contract from National Highways, and provides kerbside management services in the UK, as well as public transit fare collection and validation systems for operators in France, Belgium, Italy and other European nations.
In a separate European contract, Azienda Veneziana della Mobilità has selected Conduent Transportation and Elavon, as well as Visa, to provide a convenient EMV (Europay, Mastercard and Visa) payment system across the public transportation network in Venice, Italy.
