Machine vision specialist Vitronic Australia has been awarded a contract for the CityLink tolling upgrade project in Melbourne.

It will supply video and dedicated short-range communications (DSRC) technology for the CityLink toll system

The contract was awarded by CityLink Motorway, part of the Transurban Group, and involves replacing the CityLink roadside system with Vitronic's new solution.

Beginning this month, the project will be completed by the middle of 2022, after which the company will supply support and maintenance services.

Vitronic Australia MD Fred Curtis said the company would supply a "comprehensive tolling solution".

"Our system reliability with plug and play component replacement is a key strength to our solution," he added.

CityLink connects Melbourne's Monash, West Gate and Tullamarine freeways. 

It also links the city centre with Melbourne’s major airport and port.

The 22km road is eight lanes' wide for most of its length, four inbound and four outbound.
