Cyprus Ministry of Transport has signed a contract over the cloud hosting of its Open Transport Data National Platform, which will monitor and manage traffic.
According to a press release issued by the Ministry, the contract was signed last Friday between the Department of Public Works and Cablenet Communication Systems Ltd and amounts to €300,000 over a 60-month period.
The contract provides for the cloud-hosting of the Traffic Monitoring and Management Platform and the development of a communications network connecting 120 daily traffic volume (DTV) counters, 26 closed circuit cameras and four electronic road signs, as well as new equipment such as 40 additional electronic road signs, 170 monitoring cameras and 18 DTV counters, which will be funded by the Recover and Resilience Fund (RRF).
“The installation and interconnection of the above systems will achieve the full coverage and digitisation of Cyprus’ main urban and rural road network, offering a complete Traffic Monitoring and Management Platform,” the Ministry said.
The platform, the Ministry added, will enable the better management of transport grids by the competent stakeholders, a quick incident response and will facilitate the provision of information to drivers and privateers for the development of navigation applications as well as the provision of data to universities for research purposes.
