Niirala border stations telemetric traffic control system on main road 70 (Niirala border station’s telemetric traffic control system on main road 70)
Date du début: 31 janv. 2005, Date de fin: 29 juin 2007 PROJET  TERMINÉ 

The amount of traffic at the Niirala border crossing point increased continuously, resulting in increased traffic safety risks as well. The intention of the project was to construct an electronic traffic control system at the Niirala border station in order to enable traffic control directly from within the border stations monitoring facility. The project would improve traffic flow at the border station as well the occupational safety of employees. 50 percent of the project funding was received from the European Regional Development fund and 50 percent from the Finnish Road Administration. Achievements: The telemetric traffic control system for the lanes at the Niirala border station was completed as planned. The project consisted of three separate sub-projects: telemetrics, signage for changing traffic arrangements, and traffic lift barriers. The telemetric system, area cabling, traffic indicators and road lighting were completed in the telemetrics project. The signs informing road users of the traffic control changes, along with their support structures and lighting, were purchased and installed in the signage for changing traffic arrangements project. In the traffic lift barriers project, 16 remote controlled electric traffic lift barriers were purchased and installed at the border crossing location as planned. The designer of the traffic control system (YSP Oy) produced a user guide for the control system, and two training events were held for border station personnel. The border station personnel began using the new control system during the end of February 2007. Using the electronic traffic control system, the traffic can be controlled from within the border stations control facility on the actual driving lanes as well as on the new fast traffic lanes. The system improved the flow of traffic and sped up the inspection process at the border as well as improved the occupational safety and operational capacity of the staff .
