2010 02 12



Travellers will be informed by advanced means about the road works, their duration, by-passes and possible inconveniences caused by time lag. Also information on traffic intensity and average speed on separate road sections will be provided and drivers will be warned about the congestions on roads. It is also planned to publish information on the limitations occurring on roads due to natural conditions, traffic accidents or other reasons. The system will provide warning to drivers regarding a bad condition of pavement, slippery road surface and other circumstances endangering the traffic.
The provided information for travellers will enable certain preparedness for possible dangers, for choosing safe speed, driving time, adequate travel route and will decrease the negative impact of negative traffic conditions. This will improve traffic safety and will provide appropriate conditions for the optimisation of transport flows on the roads of national importance.
