Traffic technology company Dynniq has deployed its first EPIC contract in Ireland to support Transport Infrastructure Ireland (TII) with its Traffic Optimisation Programme in Cork.
Work delivery includes: engineering, procurement, installation and commissioning of Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) cameras, CCTV, Variable Message Signs and Traffic Monitoring. The roadside equipment deployed in Cork is connected to a new communications network over fibre optic, enabling integration with the national motorway control system in Dublin.
With the continued economic growth of Cork over the last decade, TII is now implementing Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) to optimise the surrounding road and motorway network. This will provide enhanced road user information and improve safety along the national routes. This deployment is the first of a wider set of upgrades forming strategic elements of the Dunkettle Interchange, Jack Lynch Tunnel and the future N28 Cork to Ringaskiddy motorway programme.
Chris McClelland, Project Manager, Dynniq said: “Supporting TII and Cork County Council in delivering this ITS project has been fantastic. With more infrastructure coming in line over the next number of weeks, the N40 and surrounding national road networks will become a much safer environment and it will be great to see the benefits everyday road users will experience.”
Paschal Griffin, Senior Project Manager, Transport Infrastructure Ireland said: “We are very pleased to see the fruits of our collaborative endeavours over the past while leading to this newly installed ITS infrastructure becoming live and operational. The new equipment will help to improve safety and traffic management on these high volume routes and improve the experience for their many users “
