New RoadPod® VM site in the Kimberley
New RoadPod® VM site in the Kimberley

Two of MetroCount’s® leading engineers and the Engineer CEO began the journey with a three-hour flight north of Perth, and from there, travelled to Kununurra, Halls Creek and Broome. During the week-long visit, 11 RoadPod® VM sites were installed across the Kimberley region after an initial regional Brookton Highway test site on the rough “chip seal” surface , providing a vital and quick solution to replace damaged permanent sites.

MetroCount® has delivered a result with all 11 sites being live and functional, with real-time information. The RoadPod® VM sites now provide Main Roads WA with continual and accurate data on road usage and traffic flow, improving the safety and efficiency of the road network.

The team was able to install up to 4 RoadPod® VM sites a day (also with Real Time Gateways) including extensive travelling, with a permanent site installation taking less than 30 minutes.


The project was a significant success and webwere honoured to have contributed to improving the road network in the Kimberley region. At MetroCount®, we take pride in our commitment to providing innovative solutions that make a difference.
