Combitech Traffic Systems chosen for road rolling system on the Öresund bridge

Combitech Traffic System chosen for road tolling system on the Öresund bridge Combitech Traffic Systems has been awarded the order for supply of equipment to the electronic road toll system on the Öresund Bridge between Sweden and Denmark. The order is worth over 25 million SEK in the its first phase and it confirms Combitech Traffic Systems leading position as a supplier for products and systems for electronic toll collection on roads The order is a logical continuation of the system that Combitech Traffic Systems has delivered and which is installed since a couple of years on the Great Belt Bridge in Denmark. A basic demand in the procurement has been that the systems on both bridges must be interoperable. Choosing systems conforming to the CEN standard, which is becoming increasingly dominating on the world market, has ensured this. "We are of course delighted that the Öresund Consortium have chosen us as supplier of the electronic tolling system. The motorists who decide to equip their cars with a transponder will be able to pass the toll stations in a very comfortable and safe manner without having to stop. The idea is that the same transponder shall be possible to use also on the Great Belt Bridge. Now there will no need to stop when travelling from Sweden down to the European continent." - says Combitechs project responsible, Anders Dahlbäck. The order now awarded is for 100.000 transponders and Combitech Traffic Systems has also supplied the equipment for the roadside systems in the 6 lanes for electronic tolling.

The innovative electronic toll systems are marketed under the brand name PREMID® and are already in use in 16 countries world-wide.
