Australia is to deliver a tolling roadside system for two projects in Melbourne and Sydney for a combined value of AUD$30 million (£17m).
In Melbourne, Kapsch’s tolling technology will be utilised in the West Gate Tunnel Project, an initiative which seeks to establish a second river crossing in the city and remove thousands of trucks from residential streets. Part of an agreement between two contractors: CPB Contractors John Holland Joint Venture (CPBJH JV), the full scope of the contract includes a single gantry multi-lane free-flow platform and stereoscopic vision technology for vehicle detection and classification and automatic number plate recognition.
In Sydney, Kapsch was chosen by the Lendlease Samsung Bougyues Joint Venture (LSB JV) to supply the same technology to the M4-M5 Link Main Tunnel Works project. This initiative is part of the Stage 3A of the WestConnex Programme’s ambition to ease congestion and help connect communities.
LSB JV comprises Lendlease Engineering, Samsung C&T and Bouygues Construction Australia – a subsidiary of Bouygues Travaux Publics.
In October, Kapsch announced a partnership with oil and gas company OMV to deploy a Europe-wide cashless tolling solution for trucks in Austria and Hungary.
