The Danish Road Directorate has entered into a new framework agreement with AFRY. The framework agreement covers planning, construction and operation of all intelligent transportation systems (ITS) and applications on the Danish state roads, and has an estimated value of 196 million SEK.
”We have worked with the Danish Road Directorate for more than 25 years and we are very happy to continue to help maintain Denmark’s infrastructure and help thousands of people in Denmark moving from A to B in an efficient, safe and environmentally safe manner,” says Kenneth Habo, Business Unit Manager for Transportation at AFRY.
The activities that are included in the framework agreement are going to ensure ongoing operation and development of traffic control systems and traffic signal installations, which will be carried out in close cooperation with the Road Directorate. This includes equipment on the roads, central surveillance and management systems, as well as maintenance performed to ensure the functioning of traffic facilities and the technical standards.According to the Danish Road Directorate the amount of traffic is going to increase on the roads in Denmark in the future. In order to avoid problems on the state roads, to ensure traffic flow and provide good service to the road users, traffic management is going to play a significant role. For this task there is a shared focus on the green transition and working with sustainability and the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
“Efficient operation and maintenance of traffic management and signal systems helps reduce CO2 emissions, because traffic becomes more free-flowing with fewer stops and interruptions. Red lights and traffic jams on the roads mean waiting time for the road users, extra fuel consumption and higher CO2 emissions”, says Susan Appel, Team Manager Traffic at AFRY.
