The world’s largest supplier of traffic enforcement equipment, the Sensys Gatso Group, has been awarded new red-light camera and ALPR-based truck monitoring system contracts in Australia and the USA.
Through its subsidiary Sensys Gatso Australia, the Sweden-based company has received an order worth A$1.4m (US$1m) for a traffic safety systems upgrade and services to the South Australian Government. The new order is for the supply, installation and maintenance of a new Safe-T-Cam Camera System based on the company’s GT20-S ALPR (automatic license plate recognition) camera system, which was specially developed for the Australian market.
The order includes the upgrade of 13 existing camera system sites to the new technology, and the supply and installation, and warranty services, are expected to be completed by the end of October this year. The maintenance support services will extend until October 2022.
Sensys Gatso Australia’s managing director, Enzo Dri, commented, “We are excited to extend our relationship with the South Australian government by providing a technical solution to support its Heavy Vehicle Monitoring and Management Program.
“This project will contribute to the primary objective of the Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI) to contribute to national initiatives and activities that are directed at improving road safety. These initiatives continue to play a key role in reducing fatalities and serious injuries.”
Through its US subsidiary, Sensys Gatso USA, the company has signed a three-year contract extension for Managed Services with the City of Winter Park in Florida. The city’s red-light enforcement program, which began in 2009, has been extended four previous times and will continue through April of 2021 at an estimated contract value of just over US$1m.
Made up of brick-lined streets, sidewalk cafes, parks, trees and cultural attractions, Winter Park was voted the 2017 Bicycle Friendly City of the Year by the Florida Bicycle Association, so the city authorities consider signalized intersection safety to be of paramount importance for its residents and the thousands of tourists who visit each year.
Andrew Noble, president of Sensys Gatso USA, said, “We are so pleased to be continuing our partnership with the City of Winter Park for the next three years. Chief Deal and his command staff manage this program professionally and efficiently, and are great to work with.”
