Partnership with Monotch
Costain and Monotch have partnered to bring Monotch’s Traffic Live Exchange platform TLEX into the UK. Building on the connected vehicle and connected infrastructure capabilities of Costain, the partnership is to support wide scale deployment of Cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems (C-ITS) services in a move which will enable greener, safer, and faster customer journeys on the UK road network.
As a system integrator, Costain will provide its proven ITS system experience combined with Monotch’s TLEX platform. The combination will bring benefits to national, local and regional transport authorities in the UK by enabling data-driven decision making, automated operations and prioritisation of specific road user groups.
