Mott MacDonald part of Fluor-led team named by Highways Agency for National Roads Telecommunications Services (NRTS) project

Mott MacDonald is part of the Fluor-led team, known as GeneSYS, which has been selected as preferred bidder by the UK Highways Agency for its National Roads Telecommunications Services (NRTS) project – an integrated transmission network throughout England’s motorway system which will enable the rollout of smart road technology to enhance road safety and better inform the travelling public.

Negotiations between the Highways Agency and GeneSYS will continue and, if successful, GeneSYS will be responsible for programme management, design, construction, financing and maintenance of the transmission network. The NRTS contract will include design and construction of new telecommunications systems as well as the upgrade and maintenance of existing infrastructure.

Other key members of the Fluor-led GeneSYS team are HSBC Infrastructure Fund Management, Alcatel, Jackson Civil Engineering, Peek Traffic and Telindus.

“Our consortium brings leading-edge yet proven technologies and a successful track record in public-private partnerships as well as the successful implementation of large infrastructure projects,” said Patrick Flaherty, managing director of Fluor Limited. “We are looking forward to working with the Highways Agency and our consortium partners on this important undertaking.” Mott MacDonald’s roads sector director Noel Bristow is equally enthusiastic. “In Mott MacDonald we’re excited to be working again with Fluor and with the other GeneSYS members on this landmark project.”

GeneSYS will work with the Highways Agency during the preferred bidder phase to finalise contract values and the financing agreements required for the project to achieve financial close, which is anticipated to occur in spring of 2005.
