Telvent to Upgrade and Expand Irún Toll System

October 28, 2010

October 28, 2010 - Telvent (NASDAQ: TLVT), the leading real-time IT solutions and information provider for a sustainable world, announced today the award of a contract from the Infrastructure Agency of Gipuzkoa (Bidegi) to expand and upgrade the AP-8 toll system in Irun (Spain). The aim of the project is to improve traffic conditions and facilitate tag use as a means of payment, ensuring efficiency and reliability in toll payment operations.

The project will enable expansion and upgrade of the toll area at various toll plazas along the AP-8 tollway thanks to the implementation of ten new mixed toll lanes, conventional and electronic tolling (Via T and Liter-t Ocean), in addition to an automatic line detection system. The project seeks to increase toll operation efficiency and lower travel times, thereby leading to better customer service.

Telvent will implement the Telvent SmartMobility™ Tolling management solution for highway and tolls to enhance the efficiency and accuracy of toll operations, increase travel times and minimizing drivers´ and workers´ inconvenience at the AP-8 tollway. The solution will help Bidegi to manage incidents by enabling the agency to detect and manage violations with greater ease and accuracy thus enhancing operation efforts.

“We are pleased to help the Infrastructure Agency of Gipuzkoa (Bidegi) towards improving effectiveness and reliability in their operational management, stated Ignacio González, Telvent’s chief executive officer. “Rollout of the Telvent SmartMobility™ Tolling solution will enable to predict traffic jams on the toll area and thus allow the agency to act accordingly to thereby reduce traffic jam, which will enhance air quality in the region thanks to the reduce of greenhouse gas emissions ”.

This contract award allows Telvent to further consolidate its position in the toll sector as an innovative technology provider of electronic toll management systems. The company was recently awarded a contract to implement the toll system on Bilbao’s new metropolitan turnoff (Supersur), as well as various contracts in the United States, including execution of a Free Flow system on the SR 520 Bridge in Seattle, Washington, and electronic toll management system expansion on Virginia’s Pocahontas Parkway 895.
