Latvia: High-Tech Traffic Management System to Reduce Crash Risk

  • Advanced traffic management system (ATMS) to improve driving conditions
  • The first public-private-partnership transport project in the region

Traffic Management System

On a 23km stretch on Pan-European highway E-67 circling Riga, technology by Kapsch TrafficCom will make the highway traffic safer and more sustainable.

Starting from the last quarter of 2023, drivers will benefit from a system that measures road and weather conditions and collects data on vehicle numbers and speed. That way roadway operators can make decisions based on real-time information. This increases road capacity while traffic flows remain stable. Additionally, emissions-heavy congestions will be kept to a minimum, ensuring faster and more comfortable routes for thousands of daily drivers.

Marko Frank, mobility expert and regional sales director at Kapsch TrafficCom, comments:

As the first public-private-partnership project in the sector and the region, it is an important signpost for future developments when it comes to roadway safety and sustainability.

While there are dozens of cameras, sensors, radar systems and even two weather stations installed along the highway, the central element is the versatile Dynac software platform that connects and manages all other aspects of the advanced traffic management system. It will provide traffic operators with real-time information on road and weather conditions, enabling better decision-making processes and improving highway safety.

Juris Frīdmanis, General manager of the Private Partner JSC “Kekava ABT”, comments:

The safe and effective operation of the Kekava bypass is our key objective along the following 20 years of operation. We feel confident that the technologies delivered by Kapsch TrafficCom will support us to achieve those objectives. We look forward for the implementation of the Kapsch TrafficCom systems and making the bypass available for the traffic in the near future.
