Ο Υπουργός Μεταφορών, Επικοινωνιών και Έργων κ. Γιάννης Καρούσος παρίσταται στην τελετή υπογραφής συμβολαίου για το έργο «Αναβάθμιση και συντήρηση της πλατφόρμας OMNIA-MISTIV», Λευκωσία 15 Δεκεμβρίου 2022.

Transport Minister Yiannis Karousos on Thursday signed a contract for the upgrade and maintenance of electronic boards used for the management of traffic on Cyprus’ road network.

The deal is worth €1,021,348 including VAT and was signed in the presence of the director of the public works department Eleni Kaskiri and the director of international sales of Swarco Italia, the company producing the boards, Fabrizio Biora.

“This investment will help to better manage the road network by increasing its safety and capacity by responding quickly to incidents and providing information to drivers,” said a transport ministry announcement released after the deal was signed.

“It will also provide accurate traffic data free of charge to individuals for the development of navigation applications and to research centres or universities for scientific purposes.”

The purchase, installation and connection of the platform to the control centre located at the public works department headquarters will be covered by the European Union and the government through the ‘Transnational Cooperation Programme Greece-Cyprus 2014-2020’, which aims to increase the competitiveness of the area by supporting entrepreneurship and the use of information and communication technologies.

The deal includes a six-year maintenance period.

The boards will be connected to the existing smart traffic system link, which already includes 26 road surveillance cameras.
