An innovative training for road operations
The operation of highways has become more and more complex in recent years. Highways and tunnel facilities have been upgraded with sophisticated measuring and control technology. Comprehensive monitoring systems including automatic event detection allow an immediate and comprehensive access to relevant information.
Once informed, it is possible to respond to incidents immediately - although sometimes incorrectly. This response is not only through technology but also interactions with stakeholders.
The increasing complexity of the proper response increases the need for more extensive instruction and training for operating personnel.
