RA member SICE has extended its partnership with Transport for NSW and will upgrade its current SIDERA Operations Management and Control System (OMCS) at the St Helena Tunnel in Byron Bay.
The project is now underway and will be finalised by 2023. While completing the upgrade, SIDERA will continue operating and delivering safe road performance and functionality for thousands of motorists a day. Once the project is completed, the St Helena tunnel will operate with the latest version of SIDERA, incorporating SICE’s latest innovation in the motorway and tunnel management space.
The new contract also includes the support and maintenance of the upgraded system for two years.
Manuel G. Arrojo, SICE Australia Managing Director said: “Seven years ago, SICE was appointed to deliver its SIDERA solution and other ITS subsystems at the Tintenbar to Ewingsdale Pacific Highway update. The St Helena Tunnel became the first Australian tunnel controlled by SIDERA and positioned SICE as a key player in the motorway and tunnel control systems industry of the region. This award is another key milestone for SICE and demonstrates once again the partnership approach that we want to have with our clients in ANZ.”
