ITS Can Solve Real Problems
At WSP, we provide highway and transit agencies with creative and innovative solutions that meet their transportation objectives. Our Intelligent Transport Services business provides expertise in the planning, design, implementation, and operation of solutions that focus on maximizing system performance.
We have worked with local, state, and national governments around the world, leading or participating in projects of all sizes and in multiple disciplines of system operations. Our collaborations have ranged from traffic signal optimization to revolutionary connected-vehicle demonstrations. We have developed ITS master plans, updated regional ITS architectures, and provided plans, specifications, and estimates (PS&E) for deployment of field equipment. Additionally, WSP has managed system integration and telecommunication projects in virtually every configuration.
Through a joint venture, WSP manages the National Traffic Information Service (NTIS) network for Highways England. Our scope of services includes the day-to- day operation and maintenance of the service through a 10-year contract. We have also completely upgraded and transformed the Traffic Management System, which collects and processes data for traffic conditions (planned and current events) to provide a real-time national view of traffic conditions on the whole 7,000 km of England’s strategic road network.
By understanding the root causes of issues, and by working with clients to analyze the numerous options and their likely outcomes, we are able to help them implement the right solution to ensure the operational benefits of their systems and services.
WSP is collaborating with public, private, and academic institutions at the forefront of research, innovation, and emerging technology to improve network performance. Our concept-through- operations approach ensures well-planned and well-engineered projects that are both environmentally and community sensitive. We are helping to create a sustainable society through the safe, efficient, and effective movement of people, goods, and data.
