DM Roads plays it smart

Beachgoers who frequent Rye on Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula will benefit from the installation of more than 500 sensors to monitor 650 parking spaces, 20 bins and four barbecue facilities, and notify council workers when they need to be attended to.

In September, our DM Roads business announced the exciting new partnership with the Mornington Peninsula Shire and RMIT to deliver the Rye Smart Cities trial. 

The innovative trial will span 12 months, with the intention to expand to other beachside towns along the Mornington Peninsula. 

DM Roads contributed $100,000 towards the project and additional specialist project management resources to ensure its success. 

“This Smart Cities trial will transform the Rye Foreshore into a seamlessly connected smart city that will ease congestion and enable lives,” DM Roads’ Acting Victoria/Tasmania Delivery Manager, Chris Godsil, says.
