Proposals Sought for Highway Construction Cameras

The Department of Transportation and Works has issued a Request for Proposals (RFP) for interested proponents to provide services to monitor the speed of vehicles in construction zones during the 2018 construction season. The deadline for submissions is June 27.

Proposals will be evaluated based on best overall value and cost, suggested technology used, the ability to monitor and report traffic activity, and the proponent’s experience in providing the service.

Following the construction season, the department will review the data collected and the technology used to determine its effectiveness for use as an enforcement tool and whether additional services will be required in the future.

Information on active highway construction zones throughout the province can be found at External Link Icon.

“The use of highway camera technology is one way we can help keep crews and motorists stay safe at highway construction zones throughout the province. However, we must all do our part to keep everyone safe by reducing our speed, paying attention and obeying all signs.”
Honourable Steve Crocker
Minister of Transportation and Works

“We welcome the use of cameras in highway construction zones. We hope that having these cameras will lead to more people slowing down, driving responsibly, and respecting the safety of people who work on the highways. The Heavy Civil Association of Newfoundland and Labrador will continue to work with government and other stakeholders for the continued improvement of safety for all parties on our roads.”
Jim Organ
Executive Director, Heavy Civil Association of Newfoundland and Labrador
