“At TRL, we see two transformational technology enabled trends happening across transport,” says  Ryan Hood, TRL’s head of Digitisation of Transport. “The first is greater levels of digitisation and automation, and the second is the increasing decarbonisation agenda, with rapid change and innovation associated with these two areas ramping up across the sector. Our position on CCS TTAS framework supports our ambition to continue leading the market in these areas, providing our clients with easy access to our strategic research and advice capabilities, data and technology solutions, and our range of cloud-native software products in the areas of Urban Traffic Control, Road Safety Analysis, and Asset Management”.

Previously via a similar framework, TRL provided solutions including traffic optimisation data services, accident investigation data and research, Low Emission Freight Trials, Vehicle 2 Grid trials support, and strategic support through the C-19 pandemic, totalling £12m in value.   By making its capabilities available via government frameworks, TRL activities deliver their mission to create a clean and efficient transport system that is safe, reliable and accessible for everyone.
