On 9 January 2018, following a tender process which lasted several months, Sprint S.A. signed a contract with the Wałbrzych municipality, specifically the Roads, Transport and City Maintenance Office, for the implementation of an Intelligent Transport System.
The project is financed under the investment project entitled: “Reducing low emissions through sustainable urban and suburban mobility, involving the construction of the Wałbrzych Plac na Rozdrożu communication hub and improvement of traffic management systems and energy-saving urban lighting”
It is an important feature of the project that the main communication artery of Wałbrzych – a national road that carries about 30,000 vehicles per day – extends along the Pełcznica river valley. This means that Wałbrzych presents quite unique challenges in terms of terrain, urban development, area and road infrastructure.
The deployment and commissioning of the system is scheduled for 2018.
