Swarco Traffic Romania, part of traffic technology group Swarco, has secured three EU-funded traffic and public transport management projects in Romania.

The company said that the projects are worth several million euros.

As part of the agreement, the company will install traffic management equipment across three Romanian cities, including Piatra Neamț, Drobeta, and Bistrița.

Swarco Traffic Romania managing director Liviu Staniloiu said: “We are very grateful for the full support by our sister companies in Germany, Italy, Austria, Denmark, and Slovenia to implement these projects and improve mobility in Romania.”

The company will be responsible for the supply and installation of traffic lights, traffic controllers, variable message signs, video cameras, and traffic detectors.

It will also be responsible for the construction of communication systems and the system integration across the three cities.

In Piatra Neamț in north-east Romania, the company will be responsible for the installation of ITC-3 traffic controllers at the intersections.

It will also build a command and control centre as part of the order.

The company said that the urban traffic management, as well as the public transport management functions, will be taken care of by the OMNIA and NEXT software platforms.

Staniloiu added: “As the system integrator, we are going to implement an intelligent traffic management system, including services, technical project elaboration, equipment supply, execution of works, and technical-economic documentation.”

In Drobeta, Swarco Traffic Romania will upgrade the urban mobility set-up by rehabilitating public transport lanes and streamlining public transport.

For this project, Swarco Traffic Romania will be serving as a consortium leader and system integrator, using the OMNIA and NEXT software platforms and installing ITC-3 traffic controllers.

In Bistrița, Swarco will act as a technology provider and will be involved in the establishment of public transport-focused traffic management systems.

The project aims to create a Green Public Transport Line using electric, hybrid, or low-pollution means of transport managed by the OMNIA software platform.
