Conduent Transportation has implemented a speed and red-light camera program to improve traffic safety on the island nation of Cyprus.
This program was launched following a successful pilot project. It aims to demonstrate the continued expansion of Conduent Transportation into Europe, helping to create smarter and safer cities.
Conduent has designed and plans to install 110 camera systems to enforce speed and red-light regulations as determined by the Republic of Cyprus government.
These systems, to total 90 fixed cameras at 30 locations plus 20 mobile camera units, will also be used by Cyprus to monitor regulations for seat belts and motorcycle helmets. Project partners include Brink’s Cyprus and Vitronic, as well as local engineering and telecommunications companies.
“Improving public safety on the roads of Cyprus is a key priority, and we’re pleased to join with Conduent to initiate the first phase of this program,” said Yiannis Karousos, Minister of Transport, Communications and Works for the Republic of Cyprus. “This new program will support our target of reducing the number of road fatalities by 50 percent, and serious injuries by 50 percent, by 2030.”
Back in 2021, Conduent Transportation announced an expansion for its Road Usage Charging business in the UK and Europe with a contract from National Highways.
“We’re proud to partner with the Republic of Cyprus on this important smart mobility program, demonstrating our continued growth in the European market,” said Lou Keyes, President, Transportation Solutions at Conduent. “As an industry leader in delivering solutions to help create smart and safe cities, our team is providing the Ministry of Transport with the technology and the support it needs to make the program a success for the citizens of Cyprus.”
