Date: 26 Jan 2010
Serco has been awarded a contract with the Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) to provide comprehensive management, installation, and maintenance of the department's intelligent transportation system. Serco will be responsible for maintaining over 2,500 Intelligent Transportation devices that assist traveling motorists and Emergency Responders throughout the Atlanta Metropolitan market. This new contract has an expected value of $50 million over five years.
Under the contract, Serco will manage the camera systems, video and presence detection systems, ramp metering systems, changeable message signs & structures, and the maintenance of hub buildings which house and protect the backbone devices of the entire system. The intelligent transportation system is used to provide motorist assistance, traveler information, enhance safety, mitigate congestion, and reduce carbon emissions.
"This is an innovative performance management contract and the first to be issued by GDOT's Operations department. We look forward to deploying this innovative contracting model with Serco," said Keith Golden, Director of Operations at GDOT.
Keith Hulbert, Vice President of Infrastructure & Transportation Services for Serco said, "The services GDOT provides throughout the State of Georgia are mission critical and Serco is honored to serve the traveling public."
In addition to this new work, Serco currently supports GDOT's NaviGAtor Traffic Management Center (TMC) operations with program management, technology, and staffing. Serco is also managing the privatization effort for the Georgia 511 system that provides real-time traffic and travel information, enhanced concierge services, and allows motorists to request assistance.
