Highways England requires a Stopped Vehicle Detection (SVD) solution to detect individual stopped vehicles in live lanes on Smart Motorway All Lane Running sections of the Network in England. The SVD solution must enable early intervention and the setting of road signals that notify road users of the presence of the stopped vehicle.

To provide a Stopped Vehicle Detection (SVD) radar solution:

• roadside installation will be undertaken by third parties but the supplier will be required to commission the radar solution and may be required to support installation;

• detection technology and a supporting system which provide operators in our Regional Operational Centres with stopped vehicle alerts, enabling action to be taken to intervene;

• the solution will need to be capable of detecting any vehicle permitted to use motorways.

Modifications

As described in section II.2.4).

In order to meet the increased density requirements, additional radar units are required and these will need to be inter-operable with the existing Navtech radar supplied under the current framework. No other provider could supply the Navtech radar without the agreement of Navtech, and even if Navtech gave its agreement for another provider to supply its radar, no other provider could supply the Navtech radar and associated commissioning and support services without a considerable increase in price compared to Navtech supplying its radar directly. These are the economic and technical reasons why a change of contractor cannot be made. Furthermore, if it were possible it would cause substantial inconvenience and duplication of costs to engage any other contractor to provide the additional supplies and services, when the majority of the radar units, commissioning and support will be provided by the existing supplier under this framework.
