SICE Canada has completed the installation of the Advanced Traffic Management System (ATMS) along the Rt. Hon. Herb Gray Parkway corridor and the remaining section of Highway 401 (3km), which was opened on 21 November 2015.
The remaining section of Highway 401 (3km) opened on 21 November 2015 after the first section (8km) opened on 29 June 2015. All 11km of the $1.4bn Herb Gray Parkway are now available to people in Windsor and cross border traffic.
The Windsor and Essex counties are the busiest border point between Canada and USA. More than 25% of all merchandise trade between these two countries crosses the border at this point, recording more than 10,000 trucks and 4,000 cars daily.
The new corridor is part of the future border crossing system to connect both cities, Windsor (Canada) and Detroit (USA), through Highway 401 in Canada and the US Interstate system.
SICE successfully performed the installation, testing and integration of surveillance components, tunnel fire alarm system and dynamic message signs to provide information to the user along highway 401 extension.
SICE has also installed the infrastructure for the vehicle detection system (microloops underneath the pavement), emergency call station system and communications backbone, including fiber optics cable and switches.
