Telvent to implement its SmartMobility system on Spain's Las Pedrizas Highway

Telvent has been selected by Sacyr Concesiones to implement its global management platform on the Las Pedrizas Highway in Malaga, Spain. The platform will centralize the management of traffic control and safety of tunnels and the toll system. The new Las Pedrizas Highway is a 24.5km (15.2 mile) toll road, being built with the aim of relieving traffic congestion on the Malaga Highway at city access points and achieving an estimated 34% reduction in current average intensity on the A-45, which is traveled over by more than 50,000 vehicles per day. The highway being constructed by the Sacyr Group will also enable a substantial reduction in travel time between the cities of Malaga and Cordoba.

Telvent will implement a system based on its OASyS SCADA control and data acquisition system, which will centralize toll and tunnel control systems, as well as traffic, surveillance, security and control and installation maintenance operations. This will provide Sacyr with a unified tool to facilitate infrastructure management, increase security, and ensure efficiency in toll operations. Using Telvent’s SmartMobility Road Suite, operators will have real-time information of traffic conditions inside the two tunnels as well as on the highway, enabling them to respond quickly and effectively to any emergency.

The SmartMobility platform will also provide drivers with real-time information on highway conditions, alerting them to accidents, traffic jams, and adverse weather conditions, in order to improve road safety. Additionally, it will enhance the efficiency and accuracy of toll operations, reducing travel times and minimizing drivers’ inconvenience. “We are pleased to have the opportunity to work with Sacyr Concesiones on the project involving the new Las Pedrizas Highway, which will lead to better traffic flow management in the region,” commented Ignacio Gonzalez, Telvent’s chairman and CEO. “By implementing our SmartMobility Road Suite, Sacyr will gain assurance of the dependability and effectiveness of their operational management, while at the same time reinforcing infrastructure security and user safety.”
