Kapsch TrafficCom will supply an electronic, free-flow tolling system for Brisbane’s Airport Link under a contract awarded by the consortium BrisConnections.

Brisbane’s Airport Link, which connects the Brisbane central business district and the Clem Jones Tunnel to the East-West Arterial Road that leads to the airport, is Australia’s largest privately funded infrastructure project.

Once completed, the Airport link is expected to be a cashless, free-flow toll road. Drivers will have several options to pay for their travel, including electronic tags, video tolling and trip passes, according to traffictechnologytoday.com.

Trip passes could also be purchased by phone, at selected retail outlets and at BrisConnections’ customer service centres.

BrisConnections’ tolling system is expected to start functioning in Q2 2012 and will be fully operational by 30 June 2012 when Airport Link is slated to open.
