Bird & Bird has assisted Siemens Mobility with its successful participation in a tender for the supply of an intelligent traffic management and control system in the Polish city of Tychy.

The value of the contract is PLN 118 million. Bird & Bird reports that the system to be implemented by Siemens Mobility will improve communication and security in Tychy. "As part of the order," the firm reports, "the streets of Tychy will include detection and weighing systems for moving vehicles, guidance systems for free parking spaces, weather measuring stations, pollution and noise measurement stations, and dynamic information boards. The system will significantly improve the functioning of public transport by continuously controlling traffic in order to meet the priority of facilitating the movement of public transport vehicles."

According to Bird & Bird, the Municipality of Tychy originally chose the offer of another contractor, but in Siemens Mobility's appeal of that decision, the firm successfully persuaded the Polish Board of Appeal to order the competitor's offer to be rejected. Bird & Bird then successfully represented Siemens Mobility in proceedings before the District Court in Katowice in a challenge to the National Appeals Chamber's judgment.

The Bird & Bird team was led by Partner Tomasz Zalewski and Senior Associate Julita Hoffmann.
