The airport lane closure tool is a new web-based application adapted from Q-Free’s trailblazing LaneAware Work Zones software. It is designed to help resolve the all-too common conflict between approach road congestion and passengers rushing to make a flight. Both the LaneAware Work Zones and LaneAware Airports solutions provide authorities with the ability to schedule lane closures, share workzone data with the public and media, and minimise errors and disruption.
Q-Free says both products could not be more timely. With Covid-19 vaccines edging closer to reality and governments discussing ambitious infrastructure plans to help rebuild Covid-weakened economies, the potential for road construction gridlock and the need for impactful solutions is growing increasingly urgent.
“We realised early on that our unprecedented LaneAware Work Zones solution could make a massive impact on facilities and organisations with a lot of moving parts,” said Morten Andersson, senior executive vice president of traffic management for Q-Free. “Most lane closure activities at airports are handled by multiple departments, making it an extreme challenge to coordinate activities without negatively impacting operations or traffic at critical times. Our LaneAware solutions centralise and resolve these conflicts easily, providing a seamless experience for travellers and workers alike.”
