Infracontrol has received a repeat order for the maintenance and development of the Swedish Transport Administration‘s national support system for road traffic management, NTS. The system is used by traffic managers and operations managers at the four traffic management centers in Stockholm, Gothenburg, Malmö and Gävle for monitoring and controlling traffic nationwide. The new agreement will run for two years with an option for a further two and also cover HR and skills support in the creation of a new system to replace NTS over time.
Johan Höglund, Infracontrol’s CEO, is very happy that the excellent collaboration will continue.
We‘ve been the main supplier of NTS since 2009 and we‘re responsible for the ongoing development and adaptation of the system. We do this in very close collaboration with our English partner, Nicander. It‘s very satisfying to once again be entrusted with the development and maintenance of this important system while also contributing with our expertise and experience in the creation of the new system, which will provide safe, efficient traffic management support long into the future.
Unique solution based on long experience
NTS, the Swedish Transport Administration’s national system for traffic management is a solution unique in global terms, and one which has received many awards. Johan Höglund, Infracontrol CEO:
NTS creates a highly user-friendly, uniform working environment that links and standardizes different functions while providing traffic managers with an easy-to-use, efficient decision support tool. The system was delivered in 2004 and has been under constant development and extension as new traffic installations have been connected.
Infracontrol has extensive experience from the Transport Administration’s traffic management centers. By maintaining a sharp focus on users, Infracontrol has created simple, intuitive support systems that have been making everyday life easier for both traffic managers and road users since 1993.
A powerful decision support system
National Traffic Management Support (NTS) provides supervision and control of Sweden’s road traffic. It is a powerful decision support system in use at all of the traffic management centers in Sweden. With the aid of more than 2000 quality-assured contingency plans, it helps traffic managers deal with every possible situation quickly and safely.
The system helps traffic managers handle all kinds of situations quickly and safely with the aid of quality assured contingency plans,” says Pia Wijk, Project Manager at Infracontrol. The purpose of NTS and that of its future replacement is to be an easy-to-use, efficient support in various situations and help to improve road traffic safety and traffic flow.
