For this project, SICE presented a solution based on its in-house, COTS Toll Operating System (TOS), which is actually operating in several toll projects from Chile to Australia.
Roads and Maritime Services awarded SICE the contract to deliver a Trip Reconstruction and Rating Module (TRARM) for Sydney’s major motorway project, WestConnex. The Project will be based on SICE’s in-house, COTS Toll Operating System (TOS) which has been in use in Australia since 2008. Once the Project is delivered, SICE will operate and maintain the TRARM for the following 5 years.
WestConnex is the largest road infrastructure project in Australia. The project aims to ease congestion, create jobs and connect communities by bringing together the M4 and M5 corridors to form a vital link in Sydney’s Orbital Network. WestConnex includes widening the M4 and M5 and joining them together via tunnel with connections to the Sydney Airport and Port Botany precincts.
WestConnex will have a distance based tolling system with road users charged according to the distance travelled on the network. TRARM will receive tolling data gathered by the various Road Side Systems (RSS) and process it by identifying the vehicle, reconstructing a trip, rating the trip and sending the information to the existing Roads and Maritime commercial back office for the toll collection process.
As part of the TRARM Project, SICE will deliver Advanced Automated Vehicle Identification (AAVI) for Roads and Maritime.
SICE will initially deliver the TRARM for the M4 Widening. Future stages of the road network, including existing assets such as the Sydney Harbour Bridge and Sydney Harbour Tunnel will be added to the same solution thanks to its scalable, multi-concession design.
