The New South Wales government has announced a AU$123 million investment into an "advanced" transport management system that it says will utilise predictive technology and give customers better real-time information on transportation services in Sydney. As part of the system to be delivered by 2020, Cubic Transportation Systems has been awarded a AU$50 million contract to enhance monitoring and management of the road network across the state, coordinate the public transport network across all modes, improve management of clearways, plan major events in the state, and improve incident clearance times. Transportation is about to get a technology-driven reboot. The details are still taking shape, but future transport systems will certainly be connected, data-driven and highly automated. The five-year, seven-month contract will also see the California-based company provide real-time information to the public about disruptions.
