THE TWO TUNNELS REPLACE AN OLD ROAD THAT RUNS THROUGH A DIFFICULT MOUNTAIN PASS IN THE VALPARAÍSO REGION AND ALLOW MORE THAN 14,000 VEHICLES TO GO THROUGH THEM EACH DAY , WITH AN AVERAGE SAVING OF 30 MINUTES AS COMPARED TO THE TRADITIONAL ROUTE .
Indra ’ s Intelligent Transportation Systems ( ITS ) and the In-Mova Traffic smart control and integrated traffic and infrastructure management platform , part of its Mova Traffic line of solutions , now monitor and manage both the old and the newly built tunnels , as well as the openair access roads , which run in parallel for 2.6km .
Indra ’ s solution will thus allow comprehensive control of the entire infrastructure and the traffic that runs through it with a high degree of automation . The two tunnels replace an old road that runs through a difficult mountain pass in the Valparaíso Region and allow more than 14,000 vehicles to go through them each day , with an average saving of 30 minutes as compared to the traditional route .
Indra , a leading global technology engineering company for the aerospace , defense and mobility sectors , has implemented its most advanced management and control technology for tunnels and free-flow tolls for the El Melón Tunnel project in Chile .
Regarded as one of the most advanced traffic and infrastructure management platforms in the world , In-Mova Traffic provides operators with real-time information on the vehicle flow , clearance issues , air quality and interior visibility of the tunnel and the fire detection systems .
These world-leading systems will substantially transform the service currently provided on Route 5 North , on which this infrastructure is located , by improving its safety and operability and passenger satisfaction , as well as the environmental friendliness of the road , as they contribute to reducing congestion and emissions and promote more efficient and ecological means of transport .
In addition , the control center manages the variable signaling system that informs users of the state of the roads , safety distances and speed limits . The solution incorporates an Automatic Incident Detection system ( ADI ) equipped with Artificial Intelligence to integrate the information supplied by the cameras installed throughout the site and facilitate a rapid and largely automated reaction to any incident .
