Ascom MultiToll used in successful opening of Greater Lisbon A16 toll road project

The Lisbon Metropolitan area’s new A16 toll road has successfully opened to traffic. Ascom MultiToll Solutions SAS, based in Asnières, France, has supplied the complete tolling system to the Portuguese concessionary, LusoLisboa (Ascendi Group). Ascom had previously supplied a similar toll system for North Portuguese toll network operated by AENOR (Ascendi Group). The new 25km highway runs between Belas (Sintra) and Alcabideche (Cascais) and is known as the A16/IC16 and A16/IC30. It will give alternative access to the Lisbon CRIL circular road, helping to relieve the heavily used IC19, and should considerably improve traffic conditions in the entire area.

The Ascom MultiToll contract consists of either open and/or closed toll systems for the three toll stations at Belas, Algueirão and S Pedro, which have a combined total of 42 lanes. Of these, 14 are fast ETC (Electronic Toll Collection) lanes, two are alternative lanes, which can be either manual or ETC, 22 are manual exit lanes and four are automatic entry lanes. All the ETC lanes at the three toll stations are equipped with an automatic license plate recognition system (ALPR) for effective law enforcement.

The installed toll system is based on the company’s modular MultiToll product, whose architecture was adjusted and parameterized according to LusoLisboa’s requirements. It provides all the required management functions, from the operation of the toll lanes to the central control system, which operates the revenue collection system, as well as the lane supervision and maintenance tools. The system is linked to those of Portuguese operators Brisa and Auto Estradas do Atlântico and assures interoperability with the entire Portuguese electronic toll collection system.
