Market consultation CHARM: next generation traffic management
The Highways Agency (HA) and Rijkswaterstaat have teamed up in order to develop requirements for a new generation of traffic management (centre) systems that may be jointly procured. This work is being executed under the CHARM programme and will be completed by the end of December 2012.
HA and Rijkswaterstaat are responsible for the operation and maintenance of the English and Dutch motorway and trunk road networks. Road traffic is monitored and influenced using roadside technology that is governed by control rooms in traffic management centres. Both organisations have the requirement to update control room technology.
Part of the CHARM programme is a market consultation. The objective of the market consultation is to enable the market place to show how the future strategy and objectives of HA & Rijkswaterstaat can be realised from a wide range of leading suppliers.
We invite both companies already active in traffic management, as well as ICT companies not yet active in the field of traffic management to participate in this market consultation. We expect that ICT solutions from outside the domain of traffic management can make a significant contribution to future traffic management centres.
