First publishedon www.WorldHighways.com
The International Road Federation (IRF) has awarded Delcan two Global Road Achievement Awards (GRAA) at their annual banquet in Washington, DC, for Quality Management and also for ITS.
Delcan provided programme and quality management oversight services on the Oregon statewide bridge programme, which involved the repair and replacement of 271 bridges throughout the state and a project budget of US$1.3 billion. This is the third time in the past five years that Delcan’s approach to Quality Management has won the IRF Award.
As a lead member of the Delcan-Imtech-Gtech Joint Venture Partnership, Delcan was contracted to design, supply, integrate, test and commission a traffic control and surveillance system (TCSS) for the Hong Kong Route 8 project. Delcan’s advanced traffic management system provided this complex roadway system, which consists of three tunnels, four viaducts and the famous Stone-Cutter Bridge- the second longest cable-stayed span in the world, with the most extensive and advanced TCSS in Asia. It used the latest traffic management techniques based on sophisticated incident detection algorithms and rule-based traffic plans in response to detected incidents. This is the fourth time that Delcan’s innovation and successful implementation of ITS have been recognized by the IRF.
