The Highways Agency has signed a deal with network services provider Telindus to set up and support an IP switched...
network CCTV system.
It will link more than 14,000 message signs, 4,000 CCTV cameras and traffic monitoring systems to the agency's national network of traffic control centres.
The system will be used primarily for monitoring road safety, but will also give drivers access to real-time travel information to help them plan their journeys. The contract is part of the Highways Agency's National Roads Telecommunications Servicesproject.
