CGI builds CHARM with new technology set to transform highways management across England and the Netherlands

Highways England and Rijkswaterstaat are responsible for the operation and maintenance of the English and Dutch road networks respectively.

Under their CHARM (Common Highways Agency Rijkswaterstaat Model) program they have collaborated in order to jointly develop requirements for, and procure, the next generation of Advanced Traffic Management System (ATMS) to support the operational processes of their respective Traffic Management Centres, seven regional and one national in England, and five regional and one national in the Netherlands.

Austrian company, Kapsch TrafficCom AG, has now been awarded contracts by both Highways England and Rijkswaterstaat to supply its DYNAC (ATMS) platform as part of the CHARM collaborative program.

Kapsch Trafficom will initially deliver and install its DYNAC platform in two Traffic Management Centres, one in England and one in the Netherlands, with the installment set to be completed within 26 months of the start date.

CGI has been selected by Kapsch Trafficom as its systems integration partner for both Highways England and Rijkswaterstaat. In this role CGI will be responsible for the design, build, test, and implementation of interface software, including associated Enterprise Service Buses, that will allow both Highways England and Rijkswaterstaat to reuse existing legacy interfaces and roadside devices in combination with the new DYNAC software.
