CCS publicises details of smart cities programme

After discussing the concept at the ITS (UK) Summit in Bristol last month, Crown Commercial Service has republished details of its Smart Cities – Transport Technology Infrastructure programme.

It says Transport Technology Infrastructure will enable the UK public sector to buy infrastructure for smart cities, plus traditional transport technology and will build on the success of Traffic Management Technology 2 (RM1089) through which the core components of highway technology – from street lights to road sensors – and supportive smart infrastructure can already be purchased.

Transport Technology Infrastructure will provide an easy route to market to purchase all highway and transport infrastructure, with or without a smart technology overlay

Some examples are:

  • Street lighting
  • Parking systems
  • Traffic monitoring and management
  • Environmental monitoring

Timelines

Activity Date
Market engagement June 2018 to Summer 2019
Phase 1 – Discovery June 2018 to September 2018

Phase 3 – Blueprinting design Spring 2019 to Summer 2019

CCS says it values industry’s opinion of Smart technology, the structure of Traffic Management Technology 2 and what you would like to see from its replacement, Transport Technology Infrastructure, adding “To let us know what you think, please share your views with us.”

The survey is open until Monday 21st Jan 2019 .
