******************************************************************************************
     The Transport Department today (June 11) signed a contract with CPB Contractors Pty Limited for a sum of $218 million which mainly comprises the supply and installation of approximately 660 traffic detectors, new journey time indicators at 19 locations and an enhanced speed map panel on strategic routes and major roads; integration of the existing journey time indication system and speed map panel system into the new systems; and the six-year operation and maintenance services for the completed facilities.

     Installation of traffic detectors on all strategic routes to provide real-time traffic information is one of the smart mobility initiatives in the Hong Kong Smart City Blueprint. The installation works are implemented in two phases. The first phase commenced last June, with some traffic detectors installed and put into use. The contract signed today belongs to the second phase installation. 

     After completion of both phases of installation works, which are expected to be completed by the end of next year, all strategic routes and major roads will be equipped with traffic detectors, which will enhance the efficiency of traffic and incident management. The expanded coverage of traffic detectors, the journey time indication system and the speed map panel system will also enable dissemination of more real-time traffic data and information, assisting the public to better plan their journeys and select suitable routes or transport modes.
