Transdyn has been awarded a contract by Transurban’s CityLink Melbourne Limited (CML) to design and build a new central computer system to manage traffic and plant operations for the CityLink road network.
CityLink is a 22km automated tollway in Melbourne, Australia that connects the Tullamarine Freeway, the West Gate Freeway and the Monash Freeway. The toll road provides reduced travel-time between the central business district and Melbourne’s suburbs, the airport and Australia’s largest seaport.
The new computer system, running Transdyn’s DYNAC Enterprise Server software suite, will provide seamless management of all aspects of traffic and plant operations. From a unified operator interface, the new system will monitor and control the roadway’s video cameras, vehicle detectors, electronic message signs, weigh-in-motion and counting stations, emergency telephones, motorist advisory radios, ventilation, lighting, electrical distribution, access control, fire detection, and environmental systems. DYNAC’s highly integrated user environment and advanced incident response management application will allow CML to safely and efficiently manage both traffic and facilities operations especially during emergency situations.
CityLink CEO, Brendan Bourke, said, “The Transdyn expertise and DYNAC suite of software offered the higher levels of seamlessness CityLink now required. This investment in the central computer system also anticipates future development, including the integrated freeway management system which will be critical to traffic management along the upgraded 75km Monash-CityLink-West Gate network.”
Transurban is a leading international toll road developer and investor with major assets in Australia, an asset in the US (Pocahontas Parkway), and emerging interests in other US states and the UK. The company focuses on the long-term ownership and management of advanced electronic toll roads.
