Tecsidel will implement the Toll System in ‘Corredor C’ and ‘Corredor A’ of Argentina

Tecsidel signs a project with the concessionaire Vial Andes 7 (https://www.vialandes7.com.ar/) for the supply, implementation and start-up of the Stop & Go Toll System and the Electronic Toll Collection System (ETC) for 21 lanes and 4 plazas of ‘Corredor C’ in Argentina. The mixed toll system will be installed in the plazas Villa Espil, Vicuña Mackenna, La Paz and Junín, which belong to the national route number 7.

Concesionaria Vial Cruz del Sur (http://cvcruzdelsur.com.ar/) will also count on Tecsidel experience for the implementation of the Stop & Go Tolling and ETC System for 500Km of ‘Corredor A’. The scope of the project will include 3 toll plazas: Hinojo, El Dorado and Tandil Vasconia, with 6, 6 and 4 lanes in each one.

In both projects, the system integrates three operational levels: lane, plaza and central system. The Tecsidel Back Office application allows collecting and processing all data of the toll plazas to obtain an absolute control of collection, possible fraud, reports and information exchange with other external systems.

‘Corredor C’ and ‘Corredor A’ are characterized by having a high level of congestion on their routes with a large percentage of heavy vehicles. For this reason, their respective concessionaires have started these projects in order to improve the quality of service and user safety. Furthermore, the technology installed in its collection plazas allows the payment with TelePASE TAG, accepted on the main highways of Argentina.

Including these projects, this year Tecsidel will cover a total of 5 important projects in the Argentine country.


Tecsidel is awarded two more projects in India


This project consists of the supply, installation, commissioning and maintenance of a combination of the Conventional and Electronic Toll Collection System of the NH1-Panipath  Jalandhar highway. Tecsidel will implement this mixed solution in 12 lanes and 1 plaza (Panipath) located in Haryana, and will use the RFID technology (Radio Frequency Identification) for the TAG detection and collection.

Roadis (http://www.roadis.com/en/) currently manages in India 710 kilometres of highways distributed into four projects: NH1, NH2, NH6 and NH8, which are granted by the National Highway Authority of India, NHAI.


Tecsidel signed this project to implement its solution for Automatic Vehicle Classification (AVC) and traffic monitoring in Aaya Nagar plaza, Delhi. This software detects the height and width of vehicles that pass by and allows an automatic counting, classification without affecting the traffic flow, detecting heavy vehicle passing by unauthorized channel. Thus, the users will be able to significantly reduce their journey by a better organization of traffic flow.

Furthermore, an Automatic Licence Plate Recognition (ALPR) solution will be installed to identify all commercial vehicles with yellow plate model.

MEP Infrastructure Developers Ltd. (http://www.mepinfra.com) was founded in 2002 in Mumbai and has presence in 12 states in India.

Tecsidel plans to start these projects in June 2019.


Tecsidel signs a Toll System project for the ‘Corredor Sur’, Argentina

Tecsidel signs a Toll System project with AUSUR SA, which is the consortium of the concessionaires Mota Engil, Rovella Carranza and JCR. The project consists of the design, development and implementation of the Toll System for the Argentinian highways of the ‘Corredor Sur’: Teniente General Pablo Riccheri, Cañuelas, Ruta 3 and Ruta 205.

This is a public works license under the PPP modality (https://ppp.vialidad.gob.ar/), which carries out pioneer projects in Argentina that aim to modernize the highways network to guarantee the users’ safety. That is why they have considered Tecsidel’s experience in complex technological scenarios.

On this occasion, 4 trunk plazas will be installed under the name of Riccheri, Cañuelas, Tristán Suarez and Uribelarrea, and 5 auxiliary plazas in Riccheri.

Tecsidel is awarded three important projects in India


Abertis is the world leader in the management of toll roads and infrastructure.

Abertis India controls 100% of the concessionaire Trichy Tollway Private Limited (TTPL), which manages the NH-45 highway in Tamil Nadu and 74% of Jadcherla Expressways Private Limited (JEPL), which owns the concession of the NH-44 highway in Telangana.

Due to the latest NHAI requirement that mandates alltoll systemsto be upgraded with the latest technology and that all lanes must be converted into Hybrid RFID lanes, Tecsidel was awarded the first two projects:TTPL for 2 plazas and 30 lanes and JEPL for 1 plaza and 16 lanes.

These projects consist of the supply, installation, commissioning and maintenance of a combination of the Conventional and Electronic Toll Collection systems.

The main aim of the supplementary agreement is to make the toll collection process better and faster and to reduce the cash work at the lanes through technology used in other developing countries, such as RFID TAGs.

Furthermore, all hybrid lanes will be supported by the WIM-SWB solution to obtain the weight in motion and will accept different means of payment: RFID TAGs, different Wallets, credit and debit cards.


This project consists of the supply, installation, commissioning and maintenance of the Electronic Toll Collection System. On this occasion, Tecsidel will use the RFID technology (Radio Frequency Identification) for the TAG detection and collection. The scope of this big project covers 13 charging points and 65 lanes in the National Capital Territory of Delhi, considering the complex current civil, electrical and mechanical infrastructure.

The thirteen entry points will be located at Kundli, Rajokri, Tikri, Aya Nagar, Kalindi Kunj, Kapasehra, DND Toll Bridge, Badarpur-Faridabad, Shahdara and Gazipur.

Tecsidel plans to start these important projects in the following weeks.


Tecsidel signs a MLFF project in Norway

Tecsidel and the toll companies Vegfinans AS (https://en.vegfinans.no/) and Ferde AS (https://ferde.no) signed a MLFF project at the beginning of July. The project will be carried out in Norway and consists of the provision, installation and maintenance of the road equipment of the following highways:

- E6 Kolomoen - Moelv: 6 charging points (Vegfinans AS)

- E18 Rugtvedt - Dørdal: 1 charging point (Vegfinans AS)

- E18 Tvedestrand - Arendal: 2 charging points (Ferde AS)

The free flow electronic toll system (MLFF) developed by Tecsidel, manages the toll automatically without the vehicle having to stop at the collection point, so that it does not affect the vehicle flow and reduces the CO2 footprint.

On this occasion, the MLFF solution will be configured in a single gantry configuration in which DSRC antennas for OBU readings and video cameras will be installed for the detection, enforcement and automatic recognition of license plates.

The contract includes the delivery, implementation, commissioning and maintenance of the collection equipment through SSA-T and SSA-V in the 3 locations. Both solutions will be installed on the highways with 1 and 2 lanes in both directions, whose speed limit will be 110 km / h.

The maintenance period will be 7 years with option to renew between 1 and 13 years.

Vegfinans is a regional toll road company that provides services in the east part of Norway. The parent company, Vegfinans AS, is owned by the seven counties Akershus, Buskerud, Hedmark, Oppland, Telemark, Vestfold and Østfold.

Ferde AS, based in the city of Bergen, is the regional toll road company for the municipalities of Sogn og Fjordane, Hordaland, Rogaland, Vest-Agder and Aust-Agder County.

Tecsidel plans to finish the project at the beginning of 2020, according to the execution schedule.


Tecsidel is awarded the toll system renovation on the Tamar Bridge (UK)

In February 2018, Tecsidel and "Tamar Bridge & Torpoint Ferry" sign the renovation of the current toll system on the Tamar Bridge and the ferry that connects Torpoint with Plymouth (United Kingdom). This bridge is located over the river Tamar between Saltash, Cornwall and Plymouth, in the southwest of England. It is 335 meters long, running adjacent to the Royal Albert Bridge, and part of the A38, a main road between the two counties.

The scope of this project is 1 plaza with 8 lanes and the collection by Personal Digital Assistant (PDA) on the ferry between Torpoint and Plymouth. This means a modernisation following an earlier install performed by Tecsidel. The toll system implemented in the plaza will be mixed, combining the manual toll -whose accepted payment methods are cash, bank card and Mifare, with electronic toll collection by OBUs.

For the ferry, Tecsidel will provide an electronic portable collection system, PDA, equipped with barcode and smart cards reader. This handheld device uses DSRC (Dedicated Short-Ranged Communications) technology to identify the vehicle TAG and has full autonomy and data storage capacity. Furthermore, it is fitted with a belt mounted Bluetooth receipt printer. Automatic data exchange with the central system is done by using Wi Fi network or ethernet charging cradle.

Tecsidel plans to complete the project in March 2019.

Tecsidel signs its third project of the year in Mexico

Tecsidel was awarded its third project of the year in Mexico by Tráfico y Transporte Sistemas (www.ttsistemas.com). The project consists on the supply, installation and start-up of level 1 (lane) of the electronic toll collection system of ‘Amozoc-Perote’ highway with 105,4 Km and ‘Libramiento de Perote’ with 17,6 Km.

This highway is an alternative route more efficient between Amozoc de Mota (Puebla) and Veracruz Harbour, which is the point of departure and arrival of goods in the commercial exchange with Europe. This port is also strategic for the development of ocean trade routes with North America.

The contract was signed in July 2017, in Mexico. The project comprises 44 lanes (mixed, mixed extra-large and reversible) and includes the modernization of the toll collection system in the whole highway section. The payment methods accepted will be cash and electronic toll collection. Furthermore, a non-intrusive vehicle classification system will be incorporated.

Another interesting point is that one of these plazas belongs to the Audi factory located in Puebla and it is an effective way to control the entry and exit of vehicles to the German company. The toll collection fee is totally free for employees.

At this moment the project is in the implementation phase.

Tecsidel is awarded 2 projects in Mexico

Last May, Tecsidel and Mota Engil México S.A.P.I. Of C.V., signed the contract for two projects in Mexico. These projects consist of the supply, installation and commissioning of the Tecsidel Toll Management System for the Cardel - Poza Rica and Tuxpan - Tampico highways.

Both concessions will be provided with an open and conventional toll system for 2 plazas and 16 lanes (8 multimodal lanes and 4 reversible multimodal lanes) on each one of the highways. The accepted payment means will be: cash, bank cards, proximity contactless cards, and transponders (AVI).

The system integrates three operational levels: lane, plaza and central system. The project includes Tecsidel's Back Office application, which allows collecting and processing all data of the toll plazas to obtain an absolute control of collection, possible fraud, reports and information exchange with other external systems. This solution is safe, efficient and very intuitive.

The installation of both projects will be carried out in two phases, the first starting in November 2017, the second in mid 2018.
