Transdyn was recently awarded the South Island, New Zealand Lyttelton Tunnel SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) ATMS (Advanced Traffic Management System) Upgrade project by NZ Transport Agency. Once complete, the traffic management system will enable operators to monitor and control traffic and tunnel safety systems for the longest tunnel in the country.
The DYNAC ES managed system will optimize motorist safety, improve throughput, and ease congestion inside the tunnel. From a single interface, NZTA will manage tunnel systems such as CMS (Changeable Message Signs), traffic signals, fire and heat detection systems, ventilation, tunnel lighting, over-height detection, barrier arms, tunnel drainage system, and security door alarms.
Under a separate contract, Transdyn is delivering a nationwide traffic management system that will provide integrated management of traffic, electronic message signs, lane control signals, moveable lane barrier, and traveler information services. Traffic monitoring, incident response, and sign control will operate seamlessly together to enhance NZTA’s ability to respond safely and effectively to traffic incidents and emergency situations.
The NZ Transport Agency contributes to an integrated, safe, responsive and sustainable land transport system. The Agency manages the state highway system consisting of over 6,800 miles of roadway, 4,200 bridges and culverts, and 3 key tunnels, representing about half of the 22 billion vehicle miles New Zealanders travel each year.
