What we do

Roughan & O’Donovan supports clients in the deployment, implementation and management of ITS technology to optimise the efficiency and maximise the value of transport links.

We cover the whole-life stage of Intelligent Transport Systems from initiation through design stage, procurement process, installation, commissioning and subsequent O&M phase.


Our ITS specialists are experienced in the delivery of ITS systems for clients, including Transport Infrastructure Ireland (TII), for whom we have delivered the following systems:

  • National traffic monitoring 
  • Bluetooth journey time management 
  • Asset and fault management/monitoring 

We have also undertaken a number of pilot studies for TII aimed at assessing emerging technologies and ITS solutions, including:

  • Lane control signals
  • Weigh In Motion systems (WIM)
  • VMS mounted on existing cantilever road sign structures

We are experienced in the management of ITS maintenance and traffic monitoring system contracts.

Research and development

We draw on ROD-IS' expertise in the management of the infrastructure network to provide clients with innovative solutions that align with current policies and deliver value for money.

  • For the TII Enhancing Motorway Service Operation project, we are scoping the deployment of mandatory VSL on the M50 motorway and the development of a network information management system for the national road network.
