Al Wakrah παρακαμπτήριος αυτοκινητόδρομος, Κατάρ

Al Wakrah bypass motorway is in the south-west of Doha city and serves multiple functions. It manages the bypass of Al Wakrah city and connects Mesaieed Industrial City, New Doha Port and the airport. It also gives access to the secondary network as well as uninterrupted traffic flow from the city of Doha to the southern suburbs.

Algosystems Qatar undertook the design and construction of the new 15km bypass, five interchanges (IC10, IC11, IC11A, IC11B and IC12) and two tunnels between IC11A and IC11 (of 400m and 100m length) as shown in diagram 1 below.

In particular IC11A will be a signaled interchanges. The Intelligent Transportation Systems network will be capable of meeting the needs of the network, from crossing controllers to the Traffic management center for Urban Traffic Control.

Traffic Management Control of S. Attica

S.Attica traffic management system is an important traffic management project that took place for the Athens 2004 Olympic Games. The system was designed in 2002 and was completed on schedule in the summer of 2004. It cost 255m for its design, construction and application. The operation of the system is supported by two back-up traffic control centers which receive information from 210 CCTV cameras and over 700 loops. It also receives signals from 71 incident detection cameras and controls 24 Signs.

Algosystems implemented the development, installation, configuration and commissioning of 10G Fiber Optic IP Networks and 2 Backup Traffic Control Centers

Egnatia Odos

Egnatia Odos motorway connects the port of Igoumenitsa to the northwest of Greece, with the Evros Kippi for entry to Turkey to the northeast. The name “Egnatia” has a historical reference to the road connecting Rome to Constantinople, crossing the same geographical areas as the modern Egnatia. It is 670km long, it passes through 11 major cities in Greece and connects 4 ports and 6 airports. It has 63 interchanges, 177 bridges with a total length of 40km and 73 twin tunnels with a total length of 50km.

Algosystems undertook the development, installation, configuration and commissioning of the following:

  • Integration of open road SCADA and tunnel subsystems in 26 twin tunnels.
  • Emergency IP Telephony
  • IP CCTV system
  • Optical fiber network and active network elements in tunnels and open road
  • Linear fire detection system
  • Pollutant detection systems
  • Three local control centers incorporated into a Central Traffic Control Center

 

The development of a modern Traffic Management System on a 60km motorway between Arachthos at grade junction and Panagia at grade junction is also included. The Egnatia system handles 810 different traffic scenarios and 1632 different traffic control phases.

Moreas Motorway

Moreas motorway is the most important transport infrastructure in the Peloponnese region. It is a 205km motorway that connects the city of Corinth to the northeast of the Peloponnese with the city of Kalamata in the southwest. It consists of 5 tunnels and 3 cut-and-covers, 2 lanes per direction with central parapet wall and 25 interchanges.
