Highway surveying company Yotta DCL has signed a four-year contract worth £2.27m with the Highways Agency to survey and monitor approximately 140,000km of motorway and other major roads across England.
As part of the agreement, Yotta 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.
Yotta will use its new 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.
Nick Smee, Managing Director, Yotta said: “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."
