Contracts Awarded for Highway Construction Cameras

The Department of Transportation and Works has awarded three contracts valued at $81,000 in total for proponents to provide services to monitor the speed of vehicles in construction zones during the 2018 construction season.

The contracts have been awarded to Shanahan’s Investigation & Security, Redflex Traffic Systems, and Sensys Gatso Group.

The technology provided by each company will be present at highway construction zones in the coming weeks.

The RFP for services to monitor the speed of vehicles in construction zones was issued in June. Submissions were evaluated on best overall value and cost, technology used, ability to monitor and report traffic activity, and the proponent’s experience in providing the service.

Before the start of the road construction season next year, the department will review the information collected and the technology used to determine the services that will be required in the future.

Information on active highway construction zones throughout the province can be found at www.roads.gov.nl.ca.
