Clearview Intelligence awarded DBFO contract extensions


A twenty-year long partnership that involves the measurement of traffic flows on two major English trunk roads, which are covered by DBFO (design, build, finance, operate) contracts, has been extended by a further 10 years.

Clearview Intelligence has been awarded two new 10-year maintenance contracts by Road Management Services (RMS) for DBFO (Area) 29 and DBFO (Area) 31. Under the agreements, Clearview is responsible for all traffic measuring equipment (TME) installed on the A1M and A419/A417, and associated items related to the maintenance of the traffic counting system, as well as the continuous monitoring and reporting of traffic flows, along with video verification of the data that is collected. This is the second occasion, since originally being awarded the DBFO contracts for these areas back in 1996, that Clearview (then Golden River Traffic / Clearview Traffic Group) has been re-awarded the contracts for an additional 10 years.

Clearview says its ongoing success is testament to the company’s excellent track record of effectively maintaining and accurately monitoring the routes, ensuring that customer confidence in the traffic data provided by the TME equipment is upheld, which is so fundamental to the overall financial management of the DBFO project. Clearview’s managing director, Nick Lanigan, commented, “We are proud to have successfully been awarded the new maintenance contracts for a further 10 years, and we very much look forward to the continuation of our successful partnership with RMS.”

Lee Johnson, operations director at RMS, said, “We have established a good working relationship with Clearview Intelligence over the years. We know that we can rely on them to deliver on their contract service levels. They are quick to spot any issues, and work effectively to mitigate and resolve any TME-related challenges.”
