Kapsch TrafficCom secures new Tolling Contract for Sydney Harbour Bridge and Tunnel

29 March 2016

Kapsch TrafficCom - part of the Kapsch Group, an Austrian family-owned technology group founded in 1892 - is a provider of intelligent transportation systems (ITS) in the segments of toll collection, city access control and parking space management, traffic management, traffic monitoring, utility vehicle monitoring, electronic vehicle registration and V2X cooperative systems. Reference projects in 44 countries on all continents have made Kapsch TrafficCom a globally recognized ITS provider. 

Its subsidiary Kapsch TrafficCom Australia Pty Ltd has been contracted to fully replace the existing road tolling system for Sydney Harbour Bridge and Sydney Harbour Tunnel operated by the New South Wales Roads and Maritime Services (RMS). The contract comprises supply of a new tolling system, as well as maintenance and support for five years. The contract value is more than 10 million Euro. The new tolling solution is expected to be operating by early 2017.

The Sydney Harbour Bridge currently uses an existing automated solution installed in the pre-existing manual toll plazas built when tolls were paid in cash. The new solution will allow the toll plazas to be removed and the traffic flow on the bridge to be improved. The Sydney Harbour Tunnel has a slightly newer setup without plazas, but will be upgraded as part of the contract to the latest tolling technology. Kapsch will deliver the latest in cutting-edge tolling technology based on the company’s single gantry multi-lane free-flow (MLFF) platform and Next Vehicle Detection and Classification (N-VDC) solution. This will ensure not only best possible tolling performance but also minimise visual and infrastructure impact in an area where heritage aspects are to be carefully considered, all in close cooperation between RMS and Kapsch. All installations will be made inside or near the existing Sydney Harbour Tunnel Operations Centre in North Sydney.
