IBI delivers key travel systems for Glasgow Commonwealth Games
DateJuly 31, 2014
GLASGOW – IBI Group is playing a key role in delivering accurate and up-to-date travel information for more than 1.2 million spectators and approximately 500,000 visitors at the 2014 Glasgow Commonwealth Games running July 23 to August 3.
IBI is part of the team delivering travel demand management for the Games. In the 12 months leading up to the game we provided expertise in the Travel Information Systems and Travel Advisory Services areas, creating software solutions and information for the Games family, spectators, businesses, and anyone travelling in and around the city during the Games.
During the running of the Games our team is active in the Transport Co-ordination Centre supporting the provision of real-time travel information and guidance.
“We’re delighted to be playing our part in ensuring the success of the biggest event ever held in the city,” said Graeme Scott, IBI Group project director. “These projects will leave a valuable and lasting legacy.”
“Our work in Glasgow draws on similar projects we’ve done in the past, including the London 2012 Games, and feeds future games such as the 2015 Pan Am Games to be held in Toronto,” said Mr. Scott.
IBI’s Glasgow-based systems team has been active in Scotland for more than two decades. Our Traffic Scotland systems play a key role in the operation and management of the National Trunk Road network. The award-winning Traffic Scotland information service is providing information via web and smart devices, and hosts the digital Games Radio service.
IBI’s new digital management dashboard is used by Transport Scotland’s Multi Agency Response Team and the Scottish Government’s Resilience Room, both of whom are operating a heightened service during the Games.
Over the last year, as part of the Glasgow Future City programme, IBI has worked with Glasgow City Council to deliver the state-of-the-art City Integrated Operations Centre. The Centre, for which IBI provided the architectural design and established operational procedures, is instrumental in ensuring the effective operation of all city services.
