NZ Transport Agency (NZTA) has awarded a five-year, $6.8 million (NZD) professional services contract to Transdyn, to design, build, and support a new, advanced traffic management software system to manage the New Zealand state highway network.
Traffic operations centres in Auckland and Wellington will be equipped with new computer systems, running Transdyn’s DYNAC® Enterprise Server software suite. The new systems will provide integrated management of traffic and weather sensors, electronic message signs, lane control signals, cameras, moveable lane barrier, tunnel systems, and traveler information services allowing NZTA to maximize the efficiency and safety of the state highways.
Traffic and roadway condition monitoring, incident response, and sign control will operate seamlessly together, enhancing NZTA’s ability to respond safely and effectively to traffic incidents and emergency situations. The new traffic management system will provide NZTA with the flexibility to centrally manage all roadway operations from either traffic management centre, while providing the entire NZTA agency with access to important traffic information.
The traffic management system will improve availability of up-to-date travel information in the cities of Auckland and Wellington, improving safety and reliability of trip times.
NZTA network demand manager, Deryk Whyte, said: “We look forward to working with Transdyn on this important program to enhance our ability to deliver pathways to better, safer, and more enjoyable journeys throughout our beautiful country for business and the community. Transdyn’s proven track record and DYNAC software were a strong fit for our next generation system objectives.”
