The North Carolina Turnpike Authority (NCTA) in US has selected ACS and URS for three major tolling system contracts on the Triangle Expressway.

ACS, which has won two of the three contracts, will provide the roadside toll collection system and back-office system for the expressway’s all cashless tolling system.

The road collection system includes video classification and detection, video tolling cameras and front end system integration. Back office includes transaction processing, video/optical character recognition processing, and transaction data management and tracking.

URS’s Washington Division will provide the operation services, which include traffic management and ITS staffing, and customer service centre staffing.

The contracts are expected to be finalised shortly.

Construction work on the 30km expressway recently begun at the Raleigh metropolitan area.
