Siemens marks a decade of involvement with Congestion Charging in London

Siemens ITS, a global leader in traffic management technology, has reached another major milestone in its relationship with the world’s largest Congestion Charging system in London which has seen Siemens involvement in the design, build, operation and maintenance of the system following the contract award in 2005. On 19 February 2017, the system run by Siemens has been live and operational for 10 years and during this time over two billion vehicle detection records have been processed – all with industry leading security and transactional integrity resulting in the highest performing systems from a driver compliance perspective.

The system uses advanced, industry-leading, multi-lane free flow tolling technology which extends throughout London with more than 1,300 cameras installed at over 300 sites throughout the contract life with the highest level of performance/reliability (greater than 99.9%). In December 2014, Siemens won a contract extension which will see London benefit from the latest in tolling and congestion charging technology from Siemens through to 2021.

Recognising the changing world of the enforcement market and the development of emerging technologies, Siemens ITS has invested in the latest generation of enforcement and ANPR platform, designed and built with the expert knowledge and capability of the company’s Global Centre of Competence in Poole, UK and supported by many years’ success in the market with its enforcement solutions.

Siemens Enforcement Solutions have been deployed around the globe for a variety of applications including average speed enforcement, access control, border control, journey time monitoring, dangerous goods detection, security, tolling, tolling enforcement and policing. The Siemens Enforcement Solutions portfolio including the launch of the next generation platform, Sicore II, will be on display at Traffex 2017 at the NEC, Birmingham in April.
