Inauguration of the freeway “Superstrada Pedemontana Veneta (SPV)” (Italy)

The first section of the road infrastructure that runs between the A31 Valdastico and Breganze was inaugurated on Monday, June 3, where Tecsidel implemented the toll system in 3 levels (via, plaza and backoffice) interoperable system and interconnection with the national network of highways. The opening of the SPV is a strategic work for the reactivation of the Italian northeast.

The Pedemontana Veneta Superstrada is a 94.6 km toll road plus 68.3 km regional routes in the Veneto region of northeastern Italy. The SPV is designed to increase accessibility to the municipalities of the area and to improve the traffic conditions in the national, regional and local network. This toll road connects 34 municipalities, as well as the main industrial areas of Vicenza and Treviso.

Tecsidel supplies the TOLL+ system, manual ways, automatic routes with ATPM and telepass tracks and the intelligent management system of the ITS + highway integrating all the peripherals installed along the route including the tunnels  (such as variable message panels, SOS post, CCTV video system, weather stations, etc).

This first segment allows access to the Bassano area from the A31 motorway without crossing the center of Dueville (Vicenza), freeing up the traffic area and saving between 20 and 30 minutes on local roads, which also significantly reduces the inflow of gases of escape in the atmosphere.

At the inauguration held in the Valdastico toll plaza were the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of the Interior, Matteo Salvini, accompanied by the Governor of Veneto, Luca Zaia, the Ministers of the Republic, Erika Stefani and Lorenzo Fontana, the deputies of Vicenza, Erik Pretto and Silvia Covolo, different regional councilors, the newly elected deputy Veronese, Paolo Borchia, and dozens of representatives of the institutions.

The inaugurated section is the first to be completed, the deadline for the completion of the 2020 work. The SPV is the one with the largest infrastructure works, with ordinary administration, in Italy today and Tecsidel is part of that ambitious project.


Tecsidel present at the inauguration of the new Paseo del Bajo in Buenos Aires (Argentina)

The Paseo del Bajo has been inaugurated in the City of Buenos Aires, a mega work where Tecsidel was part. It is a road corridor of 7.1 kilometers that connects the south and north of the city in an agile way, creating at the same time new green spaces and recreation for the neighbors.

It consists of a highway without barriers only for trucks and long-distance buses modifying the way of moving in the whole area. It has parts in viaduct and others that run in trench.

Thanks to the "Free Flow" electronic reading gantries of Tecsidel, smart charging is implemented by eliminating barriers and toll booths. They are equipped with RFID antennas, intelligent vehicle classification system and electronic toll collection cameras and license plates that send all data to the Back Office allowing automatic collection.

Implementing the Free Flow toll system reduces infrastructure costs, ensures reliable operation without risk of fraud, increases traffic mobility, reduces congestion and pollution, improves road safety and increases user comfort.

The new corridor improves the circulation of more than 25,000 vehicles per day and its exclusive truck lanes allow faster transit to the port's direct accesses. The route where before it took 20 minutes, now is covered in 7.

It is very gratifying for Tecsidel to see a milestone fulfilled by working in a work of such transcendence for a city as active as Buenos Aires (Argentina).

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 (, 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. As for the lanes, there will be 3 types of systems: manual, automated channeled and mixed. Furthermore, the project includes a solution for electronic toll customers management.

It is important to mention that the Riccheri plaza will have a total of 40 lanes, since the Teniente General Pablo Riccheri highway usually has a high traffic because it links La Ciudad Autónoma de Buenos Aires with the Ezeiza airport and the Buenos Aires province.

For this large-scale project, road works have been carried out in the first quarter of 2019 to improve the capacity and safety of ‘Corridor Vial’ users.


Tecsidel signs a MLFF project in Norway

Tecsidel and the toll companies Vegfinans AS ( and Ferde AS ( 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 completes the first phase of the ‘Pativilca-Trujillo’ project in Peru

By order of Autopista del Norte, who is the concessionaire of the road network 4: ‘Pativilca-Trujillo’, Tecsidel completed the first phase of the implementation of its new toll system in the plazas located at km 402 and 525 of the ‘Panamericana Norte’, in Peru.

These plazas have a total of 11 lanes, 2 reversible and 4 prepared for electronic toll collection (ETC). From now on they will have Tecsidel toll system installed in the lane (level 1), integrated with the current systems of the plaza (level 2) and back office (level 3), thus forming a modular system compatible with any other level 2 system.

Furthermore, Tecsidel implemented RFID technology in the 4 electronic toll lanes, which hugely improves traffic flow.

Autopista del Norte is the company responsible for the construction, maintenance and conservation of the road network 4: ‘Pativilca-Trujillo’. This highway is 356 km long and strategically connects the departments of Lima, Ancash and Trujillo. For this year, the implementation of this new system in its toll plazas located in ‘Fortaleza’ and ‘Huarmey’ is already planned, both containing 6 manual lanes.
