The aim of that tunnel was implementing better infrastructures to guarantee enhanced traffic viability, easier access to strategic districts and safety of all road users, modernizing road viability in the city.
The tunnel was built in the area under Concessionária Porto Novo’s responsibility, within the scope of a public-private partnership with the Municipality of Rio de Janeiro, enterprise which is unique in this market and in whole Brazil, and which
will be responsible for carrying out construction works and providing services to the Porto Maravilha urban operation.
Aesys was chosen between 2012 and 2016 to install hundreds of fixed VMS in the whole Brazilian territory due to its capability to coordinate turnkey projects, that is to say, offering a complete solution in cooperation with local subcontractors and suppliers of civil works and installation services.
All VMS installed in Brazil respond to the most recent federal ANTT and state regulations (like ARTESP), and are compliant to NTCIP protocol.
All VMS are full matrix, the full colour area on the left side of the display is fully mergeable with the rest of the active area in case the pictogram is not used.
Variable Message Signs on trailers were also provided in collaboration with Brazilian suppliers: following an Italian project and adapting the design of the solution to local regulations and to the customers’ needs, Aesys supplied
more than 70 units of this product.
