International Road Dynamics (IRD) company, announced that a joint venture with SEA Electronics has been awarded a project for the design, supply and installation of 20 lanes of Weigh-in-Motion covering six sites on arterial roads around Kyiv, Ukraine.
The turn-key project was awarded by The State Agency of Automobile Roads of Ukraine (Ukravtodor).
The total value of the contract awarded to the joint venture partners is $6.4 million and also includes delivery of a back-office system in addition to related civil works and communication infrastructure.
IRD say that the objective of the project is to implement a modular system comprised of software, hardware and communication infrastructure for Ukravtodor.
