Kapsch TrafficCom installs traffic control system in Avilés (Spain).
- Renewing the traffic management system over the next four years
- Improvements in the control of vehicle access to the old town in order to increase safety
Vienna, May 2, 2019 – Kapsch TrafficCom has been awarded by the City Council of Avilés, in the Northern Central area of Spain, to renew the management of the traffic control system over the next four years. The contract, which exceeds EUR 1 million in value, includes the implementation of EcoTrafiX™, a system designed to capture, aggregate, archive and monitor various sources of traffic data.
The collected data helps municipal technical management to analyse and manage traffic in real-time. As a result, even smaller municipalities, like Avilés with a population of only 78,000, can examine and identify the causes of congestion and provide effective solutions. Not only does the project enhance mobility efficiency, but also includes improvements in road safety, by controlling access into the historic centre. EcoTrafiX™ will be integrated to suit the current systems of the city of Avilés. However, there is potential to expand the solution by integrating additional functionalities and services.
Traffic Management is not only valuable for major cities.
“We are focused on diversifying our services and expanding the availability of our solutions”, explains Andrè Laux, COO Kapsch TrafficCom. “This is a great opportunity to demonstrate how the advantages of urban mobility management can be adjusted for municipalities of various sizes.”
With the new contract, Kapsch increases its urban mobility management footprint in Spain. EcoTrafiX™ system is already implemented in Madrid, Malaga, Bilbao, Vitoria, Castellón, Donostia, La Coruña, Valladolid, Palencia and Huelva.
