Indra is to supply traffic management technology, communications and toll systems to the Bucaramanga-Barrancabermeja-Yondó highway in Colombia, in a deal valued at €10.5 million.
The company says its line of Mova Traffic solutions will manage the 152km roadway, which unites the Santander department in the Andes mountains with the country's main oil production centres.
Indra’s Horus integrated traffic and tunnel management platform is expected to provide operators with real-time information of everything occurring on the highway. The solution’s automatic incident detection system integrates information from cameras and sensors, and sends alerts to the control centre in emergencies, the company adds.
As part of the deal, Indra will create a control centre to supervise all the smart transport, safety and toll collection systems for the highway along the outdoor section of the roadway and its two tunnels, 34 viaducts and four toll stations.
Additionally, variable signage systems will provide drivers with real-time information on road conditions, the safe distance between vehicles, speed limits or current incidents.
