Sociedad Ibérica de Construcciones Eléctricas (SICE) has won two intelligent transportation system (ITS) contracts in Canada and Portugal.

The company’s Canadian division has won a contract for the design, supply, installation, integration and commissioning of the ITS system, which will be installed on the new bridge for the St Lawrence corridor in Montreal.

The firm will also provide a two-year warranty for the ITS.

"The new bridge will be available for public use from 1 December 2018."

As part of the ITS contract, SICE Canada will deliver 21 CCTV systems, microwave radars, two weigh-in-motion (WIM) units, two road weather stations, six variable message signs (VMS), and 60 full-matrix full-colour lane control signs.

As the existing Champlain Bridge has a high traffic flow, there was a need for a new crossing route.

Located downstream from the current Champlain Bridge, the length of the new bridge is estimated to be around 2.1 miles (3.4km) from Ile des Soeurs (Nun’s Island) to Brossard.

The new bridge will be available for public use from 1 December 2018.

SICE has also secured maintenance and installation contracts from Infraestructuras de Portugal (IP) for the four main tunnels in the Greater Lisbon region.

As part of the contract, the company will oversee maintenance services for the equipment, and installation of new telematics systems and traffic infrastructure in the Benfica, Venda Nova, Grilo and Ameixoeira tunnels, as well as of their traffic information control systems.

The contract work also entails the installation of network infrastructure, fibre-optic and network assets, and the maintenance of the PLCs/datalogger; CCTV cameras; mechanical and electrical equipment, including lighting and ventilation; gas sensors (NOx, CO, OP); SOS emergency telephone posts; variable message signs (VMS); cross-arrow signals; emergency services; detection and firefighting systems; and Shadow Toll subsystems.
