Lundby Tunnel in Gothenburg Improves Safety With Kapsch TrafficCom

Share

The Swedish Transport Administration Trafikverket assignedKapsch TrafficCom (Kapsch) to upgrade Lundby Tunnel in Gothenburg. To improve safety and traffic flow, the control and monitoring systems will be modernized by implementing a new CCTV system with an Automatic Incident Detection.

The Lundby Tunnel at Hisingen in Gothenburg is around 2 km long and consists of two parallel, two-lane tubes. Inaugurated in 1998 and built to improve the environment for the residents and the traffic flow along the heavily used thoroughfare, it is the longest tunnel in the western region of Sweden. As tunnels constitute the most vulnerable points of any roadway system, Kapsch was commissioned to implement a new Advanced Traffic Management System (ATMS).

The upgraded system collects real-time traffic data and delivers it to the control centers, allowing operators to detect and respond to congestion, incidents, and emergency situations. The information can then be quickly disseminated so that drivers can make informed travel decisions. For the new CCTV-system all cameras in the tunnel (approx. 80 units) will be replaced. The Automatic Incident Detection will be expanded with new functions related to pedestrians, lost goods, and smoke.

“While we have installed our innovative systems at tunnels, bridges, cities and roadways all around the world, this is the first ATMS-project for Kapsch in Sweden. This is a further success and commitment of Kapsch in the Scandinavian Market, where we have already proved to be a reliable partner for other kinds of ITS (Intelligent Transportation Systems) solutions”, says Mikael Hejel, responsible Area Sales Manager for the Nordic countries.
