Ross & Baruzzini, as a member of the Reliant team, won the contract to design and build the Versova Bandra Sea Link (VBSL). The system design provides the VBSL with an integrated, fully operational traffic management and control solution to meet their current and future needs. It includes the necessary technologies and interfaces in order to proactively manage and operate the roads, provides information, and provides cashless payment options leading to and within the sea link. This will include all head-end related equipment, accessories, software, licensing, and other equipment necessary for the operations of the system.
The toll design incorporates Intelligent Transport System (ITS) technology to identify vehicles, minimize cash payment, offer a better payment system, reduce delays, reduce transaction time and reduce stopping to make the patron happier. The ITS adds new technology and new procedures to the Toll Collection Systems infrastructure and the vehicles such as incorporating automatic Electronic Toll Collection and semi-automatic Smart Card system alongside the manual toll collection. The Toll Collection System is monitored and audited by central and plaza computer systems linked by a data communications network utilizing a fiber optic backbone.
