Information about lots

Lot No: 1 Lot title: Temporary Automatic Traffic Counting Surveys

1)Short description

TfL OIA has identified a requirement for external resources to support Temporary Automatic Traffic Count Surveys (TATC). TfL does not have in-house resource capability to conduct Temporary Automatic Traffic Counting Surveys using a non-invasive radar or infra red technology. Therefore external resources will be required when demand for such monitoring arrives. At present, TfL OIA is unable to estimate the scale of the potential TATC workload. However it is reasonable to assume that a maximum of 60 weeks (work hours) of temporary ATCs will be commissioned each year across multiple sites.

TfL OIA has identified a requirement for external resources to support video surveys of traffic flows at large complex road junctions as well as general video recording of behaviours in the London Area. TfL does not have in-house resource capability to conduct Video Surveys. Therefore external resources will be required when demand for such monitoring arrives.

Lot No: 3 Lot title: Manual Counting Surveys

Therefore external resources will be required when the volume of demand for monitoring exceeds TfL OIA’s ability to undertake them.
