February 28, 2012 -- UK highway surveying company Yotta DCL has signed a four-year contract worth around GBP2.27 million (USD3.6 million) with the Highways Agency. Over the life of the agreement, Yotta DCL will survey and monitor approximately 140,000km of motorway and other major roads across England.
As part of the agreement, Yotta DCL will perform a Traffic Speed Condition Survey (TRACS) to determine the condition of the road surface, assess the areas in particular need of repair and determine where immediate action needs to be taken.
During the bid process, Yotta DCL was awarded the highest score on the overall qualitative criteria used to select the successful bidder. Yotta DCL will use its new state-of-the-art Tempest highways data capture vehicles to carry out the survey and will also participate in the development of new algorithms to produce more accurate modeling of the road surface deterioration.
“This is a great start to 2012 for Yotta DCL and we are delighted to be awarded this significant contract with the Highways Agency. At the time of our preliminary results, we highlighted the potential for our new Tempest vans. That potential has today become clear and this contract win is testament to Yotta DCL’s technical superiority and progress,” said Nick Smee, Managing Director, Yotta DCL.
