Atlas Arteria (ALX) to use Asset Vision for the Dulles Greenway toll road in Northern Virginia, USA
Asset Vision has signed a contract to supply the Asset Vision Platform to Toll Road Investors Partnership II (TRIP II) and Atlas Arteria for asset maintenance on the Dulles Greenway in Northern Virginia, USA.
Asset Vision has been chosen as the Asset Management platform to record and manage the Asset Register, Inspections and Maintenance of all infrastructure assets on the Dulles Greenway toll road in Northern Virginia, owned by Atlas Arteria / TRIP II.
The project will encompass all asset and maintenance management activities for the Dulles Greenway toll road, including the road pavement carriageways, bridges/structures, safety barriers, signs, gantries, vegetation areas and buildings.
The Asset Vision Platform will be ready for production use by Atlas Arteria in the second half of 2020.
The Dulles Greenway is a privately owned 14-mile toll road that connects Washington Dulles International Airport with Leesburg, Virginia. The Greenway is the first private toll road in Virginia since 1816.
Since the Greenway’s dedication on September 29th 1995, commuters have enjoyed a non-stop alternative to Routes 7 and 28. Previously, a trip from Leesburg to Dulles during rush hour would take approximately 30 minutes. That same trip, utilizing the Greenway’s 65mph speed limit and complete lack of traffic signals, is now less than 15 minutes.
The Greenway also maximizes traffic flow by offering electronic toll collection through the Virginia Department of Transportation’s Smart-Tag/E-ZPass System. Smart-Tag/E-ZPass is the quickest, most convenient toll payment method available. The Greenway’s Smart-Tag/E-ZPass lanes process six times as many vehicles per hour as conventional cash payment lanes.
The Greenway is a leading example of the current trend towards the privatization of public facilities. The Greenway demonstrates how the public and private sectors can join together to supplement the existing transportation infrastructure without raising taxes. This project represents a new paradigm for cooperation between the public and private sectors for resolving infrastructure issues.
