Serco wins $355M smart transportation contract

Company will operate Virginia's transportation operation centers, safety service patrol

Serco has won a six-year, $355 million contract with the Virginia Transportation department to integrate and operate the state’s five transportation operation centers.

The company will operate the centers, and will manage the safety service patrol under a single system instead of separate geographical programs, Serco said in a release.

Work will begin after Serco and Virginia complete final negotiations.

Serco will monitor traffic and electronic message signs, manage incident and emergency response, dispatch safety service patrol and maintenance crews, provide 511 information, manage HOV lanes, and provide real-time information to emergency responders.

The company provides traffic management services around the world, including active traffic management and intelligent transportation systems in the United Kingdom, and traffic/tunnel controls in Hong Kong.  It also counts Georgia's DOT as a customer.
