The bad news is in the image above......whereby a TEAM of Transportation Investment Corporation had to fly over to France to see a working dry run of the Tolling system for the Port Mann Bridge.
To make matters worse the consortium seem to have been led to believe that Vancouver is adjacent to the tolling booth. Not a whisper of the Largest City in BC.... Surrey.
Who is Egis Projects and SANEF? Just ask Google,eh. so too for Trans-Canada Flow Tolling Inc., Vancouver, BC where their website is UNDER CONSTRUCTION......
The ORT system is planned to be operational from December 2012 and more than 130,000 vehicles a day are expected to cross the Port Mann Bridge. The contract covers a period of 7 to 11years and will include: revenue collection and invoicing; enforcement and recovery of unpaid tolls; toll tag and customer account management; and use of Customer Service using internet- based self-service and social media channels. It will also cover a dedicated multi-lingual call center to deal with enquiries and registrations, with users having the option to register via the internet, telephone or through Points of Sale. Operating as the ‘V-Flow’ consortium, Egis and SANEF have operated the ORT system on the Golden Ears Bridge, for Vancouver’s Translink regional transportation organization, since 2009.
