Works on the route will impact more than thirty nearby cities
SAN JOSE, Calif. & SANTIAGO, Chile, September 21, 2021--(BUSINESS WIRE)--In a consortium with ETC Peajes Electrónicos S.A., a partner with local presence in Costa Rica, Kapsch TrafficCom has just been chosen by the Fideicomiso Ruta Uno to provide toll collection services with TAG devices for the toll stations in Río Segundo and Naranjo de Alajuela. There are currently two operational toll plazas on the route, for which Kapsch will implement its SmartTOLL solution.
The improvements at the Río Segundo and Naranjo toll stations complement the works to be carried out along this 55 km route, which will impact more than thirty nearby cities. The route connects three provinces in the country's central plateau and crosses the international airport. Together with Route 27, it connects the port of Caldera to the Pacific zone, which is very touristic at all times of the year.
The scope of the project foresees the implementation of 7 mixed lanes, which will allow electronic or manual toll collection, being 4 lanes at the Rio Segundo toll plaza and 3 lanes in Naranjo. The electronic toll collection service will be provided for an initial 12 months, which may be extended for an additional 12 months.
"With the success of our toll solutions in many Latin American countries, we at Kapsch are pleased with the opportunity to bring our technology to Costa Rica and be part of such an important project", says Juan Zamakona, Kapsch's Vice President for Mexico, Central America and the Caribbean.
Technological solution for TAG toll collection
Kapsch will support the current operation of the toll stations through its SmartToll technological solution for the manual classification by vehicle type and the continuous recording of all transactions. The solution brings an interoperability functionality that will allow integration with the Quick Pass intermediation and electronic collection system operated by ETC in the "stop and go" mode.
