Sopra Steria has been awarded a contract by new client Transport for London (TfL) to develop a new control room system to tackle some of the biggest issues facing the capital, such as congestion and road danger.
TfL is responsible for managing 580km of the capital’s busiest roads, as well as a number of other vital assets such as bridges, tunnels and more than 6,000 traffic lights. This new software will present a data rich picture of what is happening on the roads across London, enabling TfL to respond quickly to incidents and keep the capital moving. Pulling in a lot more source data about congestion, bus performance, weather, roadworks and traffic incidents, the new control room will give everyone managing the road network a single unified view and will include up to the minute details of all known incidents and the actions being taken.
“We’re working to completely overhaul the way we manage London’s road network as we tackle some of the biggest challenges our growing city faces, such as poor air quality, road danger and congestion. Our world-leading work with Sopra Steria will enable us to respond to incidents on the roads much more quickly, keeping the roads safe and clear and helping to keep London moving.”Glynn Barton, TfL’s Director of Network Management
“Our vision is to empower Government to make a difference to everyone, every day, through the services we design and deliver. The new control room system will make use of rich data to enable TfL to keep the capital’s citizens and visitors alike safe and on the move through the city’s road network.”Adrian Fieldhouse, Sopra Steria’s Managing Director for Government
