- Abertis’ technology subsidiary concession will be extended until March 2021
Emovis, Abertis’ toll technology subsidiary, has signed with the Transport Infrastructure national agency of Ireland a two-year extension for the operation of the M50 Western Ring-Road free-flow (barrier-less) tolling up until March 2021.
This year, the management of the M50 free flow tolling, the first that was installed in Europe, celebrates its tenth year being operated by Emovis. Since 2008, the traffic has grown by 63% to 143,000 passages a day.
The M-50 is integrated in the Irish Interoperability Management Services Provider (IMSP), a e-toll collecting interoperable system for several motorways in the country, which is also managed by Emovis.
Emovis is the leading service delivery and technology arm of Abertis in the global markets for all electronic tolling and smart mobility solutions. With over 650 employees worldwide, Emovis operates some of the world’s largest All Electronic Tolling infrastructures in the UK, Ireland, the U.S. and Canada.
In Ireland, with over 150 employees, Emovis was the first Company to introduce All Electronic Tolling (also known as free-.flow tolling) also in Europe.
In the U.S., Emovis is involved in Road User Charging projects in Oregon and the state of Washington. In July 2018, it successfully delivered the U.S. first Truck Tolling Back Office to Rhode Island Department of Transportation.
