Dynniq secures its largest EPIC project in support of Transport Infrastructure Ireland’s (TII) M50 Traffic Flow Optimisation ITS Deployment Contract

After the successful Engineering, Procurement, Installation and Commissioning (EPIC) project in Cork earlier this year, Dynniq are now delighted to be commencing a major EPIC project in Dublin along the M50 working closely with TII.

This project will focus on the Engineering, Procurement, Installation and Commissioning of Intelligent Transport System (ITS) assets along the M50 which will cover approximately 294Km of motorway lanes going around the outskirts of Dublin.

Field assets include; Variable Message Signs (VMS), Advanced Motorway Indicators (AMI), Slip Road Signals, CCTV, Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR), upgrading the communications network equipment as well as cable containment and associated power requirements to support the new assets.

The equipment will be connected to a core communications network via fibre optic cable with the data being transmitted to the Motorway Operations Control Centre (MOCC). Integration with the Network Intelligence and Management System (NIMS) will enable messages to be automatically adjusted based on road conditions. The MOCC can also set messages manually based on other unpredictable events or information provided by proactive measures such as CCTV monitoring the road users.

With a clear roadmap for future technology, Cooperative ITS (C-ITS) systems are being deployed using the latest technology available for the roadside and in-car information.

Having worked on numerous European C-ITS projects, Dynniq are well placed to demonstrate the advantages of C-ITS for both the road user and the road maintainer including improved safety, improved journey times as well as the reduction of wear and tear on the road and vehicle.

Upon completion, Dynniq will maintain the system for a further five-years cementing its position as one of the leading ITS suppliers in Ireland.

“This is a truly exciting project to be involved with, for Dynniq to build on its capabilities of deploying these technologies as demonstrated on N40 in Cork, but to be assisting TII in its goal of deploying C-ITS technologies to improve the safety of all its road users.”
