The business also provides safety camera and associated back office solutions as well as a complete capability for the installation and maintenance of intelligent transport systems and equipment, such as maintaining over a third of London’s traffic lights.

Serco Transport Solutions employs 253 people across the U.K. and three in Australia with offices in Stockton on Tees, Beckton (East London), Belfast, Birmingham and Cumbernauld, near Glasgow, Scotland, as well as in Sydney.
