Mott MacDonald to deliver new regional urban traffic management and control system, UK

Mott MacDonald has been appointed by councils in Tyne and Wear to refresh their urban traffic management and control (UTMC) system. The upgrade will help the councils support their main policy objectives of improving safety and air quality, network monitoring and offering informed travel choices, as well as incident and event planning and management

The existing Tyne and Wear UTMC system, which Mott MacDonald has provided since 2010, monitors the busiest and strategically most important parts of the region’s road transport network. This accounts for over 750,000 vehicle movements per day and more than 11,000 incidents, collisions and events annually.

For the upgrade, Mott MacDonald will deliver the latest version of its Osprey UTMC product. In addition to existing functionality, it will include significant improvements to strategic planning and reporting tools. The project will be delivered over multiple phases. Initial implementation of the new Osprey system is due for completion in early 2018, with further phases to be completed by the end of 2018. The contract also includes an additional five years of system support until 2023.

Craig Morrison, Mott MacDonald’s project director, said: "We are looking forward to working with the Tyne and Wear local authorities to enhance their Osprey functionality, such as dashboard views, historic data display and strategy implementation. This will make it easier for their control room operators to implement actions to improve traffic flows, which in turn will reduce congestion for the benefit of commuters within the region.”
