Riyadh Officials Ink $100 Million Deal for Traffic Management System

The Arriyadh Development Authority (ADA) of Saudi Arabia has signed a $100 million contract to deploy traffic management system in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia’s largest city.

Selected was TransCore, a Nashville-headquartered provider of innovative, technical solutions and engineering services for applications encompassing next generation Open Road Tolling and Traffic Management Systems.

For project, TransCore will deploy its TransSuite® software solution to manage traffic signal operations at 350 of Riyadh’s busiest intersections. The system automatically adjusts traffic signal timing in response to real-time traffic conditions, representing a significant upgrade over the existing fixed-time system.

“Deploying an advanced traffic management system is a critical step in our plan to improve and manage the flow of traffic throughout Riyadh,” said ADA Strategic Studies Department Manager Abdulaziz Alghannam. “TransCore’s solution will enable us to quickly adjust to real-time traffic conditions, providing a safer more efficient roadway network.”

TransCore’s approach to this project includes integration of its TransSuite Advanced Traffic Management System (ATMS) with an adaptive control system to reduce congestion in the Kingdom’s capital city. The software-based solution combines data, real-time communications and analytics to handle both routine and unexpected traffic conditions, and to facilitate immediate communications among agencies responding to an emergency or abnormality.

Noted TransCore President, Tracy Marks,“This project will be a benchmark for adaptive traffic management on a large scale, and we’re pleased to have the opportunity to be a part of such an innovative project. We’re also grateful for the opportunity to expand our operations in the Middle East.”

TransCore first established an office in the Middle East in 2006 with the design and installation of the Salik Toll System for the Roads & Transport Authority in Dubai. Since then, TransCore has continuously expanded and operated the Salik system, which was recently awarded the 2014 Toll Excellence Award in Technology by the International Bridge, Tunnel and Turnpike Authority.
