Sydney transport management system support
Cubic has extended its contract for operating the New South Wales and Sydney transport management system for improving mobility and road safety in the region.
Cubic Transportation Systems (CTS) has extended its contract with Transport for New South Wales (TfNSW) for ongoing maintenance and operation of the Sydney Transport Management Centre (TMC) central computer system managing traffic throughout the New South Wales road network. The contract extension includes options to continue until June 2020.
Cubic’s TMC relationship with TfNSW dates back to 1997 when the company was contracted to develop and deploy its Incident Management System (IMS) technology to manage traffic conditions for the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games. Since then, Cubic has expanded its IMS system to support additional requirements for TfNSW transport planners to manage traffic congestion and road safety for Sydney drivers.
“This extension confirms the foundation on which the TMC will continue building its transport systems that benefit the people of NSW,” said Scott White, executive director, Sydney Transport Management Centre.
“We see this contract extension as a testament to the strong relationship between the two organisations. It opens up the opportunity for us to introduce NextTraffic – our next-generation, integrated multi-modal traffic and transport platform – that is part of CTS’s NextCity vision,” said Tom Walker, senior vice president and managing director for CTS Asia-Pacific.
Cubic’s IMS operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week in providing real-time IMS information to a large number of operators on the TfNSW road network in order to efficiently manage and lessen the impact of congestion. The IMS incorporates features including automatic incident detection and response, variable message and speed-control signage and traffic data collection.
