Videalert hosted Bus Lane Enforcement systems certified by Transport Scotland
ITS (UK) member Videalert, one of the UK’s leading suppliers of intelligent traffic management and enforcement solutions, has achieved Approved Devices certification from Transport Scotland for the deployment of its hosted digital video platform to enforce bus lanes. As one of the only manufacturers to have achieved this certification, Videalert’s hosted platform provides local authorities across Scotland with a quicker and easier way to implement unattended CCTV enforcement of bus lanes to speed up journey times and encourage people to use public transport.
According to Tim Daniels, Client Development Director at Videalert: “Videalert’s hosted enforcement solution enables councils to meet their compliance objectives by delivering a consistently higher level of performance and availability at a significantly lower cost than traditional systems. Importantly, the flexible hosted platform makes it a quick and cost effective process to deploy CCTV enforcement as it does not require the installation of any IT at council offices.”
Videalert’s digital video platform provides councils with unrivalled flexibility as it supports multiple civil traffic enforcement, traffic management, community safety and low emission zone applications from a single CCTV infrastructure. It has an open architecture and can be integrated in any environment and offers high levels of future proofing and additional camera assets and enforcement applications can be cost effectively added as required. The system is also used as a front end by most of the leading providers of back office PCN processing systems.
“Videalert is part of the wider Marston Holdings group which offers a comprehensive range of design, build and enforce solutions which include a number of transportation and enforcement services,” continued Daniels. “Our hosted video platform offers 99% uptime with increased productivity, which is generating significant interest from councils wanting to replace legacy systems and cost effectively extend enforcement to further improve compliance.”
