21 December 2006 - Gouda , the Netherlands - Imtech (technical services provider in Europe ) has obtained mobility contracts valued at around 20 million euro to help speed up considerably the flow of traffic on vital road links in the Netherlands .

The projects were acquired by Imtech’s Infra division, a specialist in resolving mobility issues by using state-of-the-art technology. After all, technology is becoming more and more important in ensuring safe traffic flows on the busy roads.

At the start of this year, Imtech secured a ten-year contract for the maintenance of the Oudenrijn Traffic Management Centre (which includes the national Traffic Information Centre) at Nieuwegein. Additionally, Imtech was recently awarded maintenance contracts for the traffic management centres at Rhoon (a ten-year contract, in combination) and Geldrop (a six-year contract). Under a performance-related contract with the Directorate General of Public Works and Water Management (Rijkswaterstaat) , Imtech offers a high-level of maintenance and management services at these centres.

The Bureau for Traffic Enforcement of the Public Prosecution Service (BVOM, Bureau Verkeershandhaving Openbaar Ministerie) has contracted Imtech to replace and upgrade existing technology for monitoring traffic throughout the Netherlands . This technology identifies the dynamics of traffic flows in the Netherlands with a view to determining traffic and enforcement policies.

The Directorate General of Public Works and Water Management has commissioned Imtech to gradually replace and re-install innovative and safe traffic systems over the coming four years around the Haarrijn intersection of the A2 motorway. These include systems for Motor Traffic Management, dynamic route information and slip road filtering .
