Sydney, Australia – A new reference has been added to SICE’s portfolio after agreeing to a contract with Transurban to replace the existing Operations Management and Control Systems (OMCS) at the Lane Cove Tunnel and Hills M2 Motorway in Sydney.
SICE was awarded by Transurban the replacement of the two existing control systems in Lane Cove Tunnel, a 3.6 km twin tunnel, and the Hills M2 Motorway, which also has a 460m twin tunnel, delivering SICE’s flagship centralised management system SIDERA and integrating both assets into a unique OMCS system. This integrated system will allow safer and more efficient management of the existing tunnels and roads.
This is SICE’s third ongoing OMCS replacement project in the region, along with integrating the CityLink motorway into the West Gate Tunnel OMCS and replacing the Westlink M7 Motorway OMCS in Sydney. This new contract reinforces SICE’s position as the lead OMCS vendor in Australia and its ongoing collaboration with Transurban.
The awarded contract includes the provision of upgraded Control Centre equipment, which includes workstations, servers and video walls, a Digital Video Management System, and a Telephony Management System. SIDERA’s scalability and expandable architecture make integrating and upgrading these subsystems easy while reducing the risk of incompatibility between other existing systems, devices, and applications.
