The work our ITS teams do today will change how we travel tomorrow by delivering safer, more sustainable travel. As the Principal ITS Domain Lead you will be responsible for supporting alignment of the business needs and strategies with the ITS solutions capability across a 1-10 year time horizon.

Our world-leading Intelligent Transport Systems teams support the creation of roads for the future. They make toll collections automated and easy. They deliver advanced control systems that monitor and manage traffic on the road - that can detect traffic incidents, and even predict when an accident is more likely to happen. They make roads ready for driverless cars, and co-ordinate smart traffic flow to get us where we’re going faster. A career here makes a difference.
