Serco Citizen Services has been awarded a contract of up to ten-years by the Victorian Department of Justice and Community Safety to continue operating the road safety camera program across Victoria.
The contract covers the operation of, and image processing for, fixed and mobile red light and road safety cameras across the state utilising significant new technology capability.

The value of the contract excluding potential extensions is AUD $178m.
Serco first won the contract to deliver the road safety camera program in Victoria in 2007 – and for over a decade has been a trusted partner of the Victorian Government, Department of Justice and Community Safety, Victoria Police and VicRoads, successfully delivering our contract KPIs. Serco was successful in securing the new contract because of our renewed vision for technology innovation, proven service delivery record, technical compliance and value for money solution.
Mark Irwin, CEO Serco Asia Pacific said: “We are delighted to have been selected by the Victorian Government to continue delivering this vital element of the road safety program across Victoria.”
“This new six-year contract demonstrates the confidence the Victorian Government has in Serco to deliver significant improvements and cost savings in an important program that makes roads safer for all Victorians. With more than a decade of experience in successfully operating road safety camera programs in Australia, we offered innovative solutions that built on our strong, trusted partnerships.
