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 national traffic monitoring, bluetooth journey time management and asset and fault management/monitoring. 

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

We have undertaken pilot studies for Transport Infrastructure Ireland (TII) aimed at assessing emerging technologies and ITS solutions, including:

  • lane control signals
  • weigh In motion systems (WIM)
  • variable message signs (VMS) 

Research and development

We draw on our research team's 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 variable speed limits (VSL) on the M50 motorway and the development of a network information management system for the national road network.
