Q-Free wins Stockholm traffic deal
Swedish transport administration Trafikverket has signed a design and build contract with ITS (UK) member Q-Free to upgrade Stockholm’s congestion charge system.
The 130m NOK (£11m) deal is to revamp the technology including a new camera platform and updated automated number plate recognition software solutions.
ITS International reports the system of charges in the Swedish capital was originally delivered by Q-Free in 2005.
The company says: “For 15 years it has contributed to reduced congestion, improved air quality and a modernisation of road infrastructure.”
The contract includes 10 years of service and maintenance and Q-Free says most of the system deployment revenues will come through during this year and 2022.
