IRD Announces New Contract Awarded in Mongolia Valued at CDN $769,000

SASKATOON, SASKATCHEWAN--(Marketwire - Sept. 29, 2010) - International Road Dynamics Inc. (IRD) (TSX:IRD) announced today that it has been awarded a new contract in Mongolia by MCS Electronics valued at CAD $769,000. The project involves the supply and installation of IRD's Weigh-in-Motion and toll collection systems along the Tavan Tolgoi – Gashuun Sukhait toll road, a crucial route being used to enhance mining development and expansion in the Gobi region bordering China. The toll road is built to transport coal to China from the Ukhaa Khudag (UHG) coal deposit, a high quality coal deposit in Mongolia.

The contract involves the supply of a toll system at 4 plazas as well as 4 pre-selection slow speed Weigh-in-Motion sorting systems to keep overloaded trucks off the road. Further, the contract involves the use of RFID tags and readers to collect tolls from the trucks using the toll way. All over-weight trucks will be prevented from using the toll road. MCS Electronics will act as the contractor for this project which is scheduled to be commissioned in early 2011.

"We are extremely pleased to be extending our presence in Asia with this important new contract," commented Terry Bergan, President and Chief Executive Officer of IRD. "Our installed solution will ensure proper asset management of the toll road and provide suitable monitoring and screening to assist with proper operations and management of this important transportation link between Mongolia and China."
