Straubing is an independent city in Lower Bavaria, southern Germany. To address the local concerns related to parking, the city was looking for a traffic management system that could provide:
- Better management of existing spaces
- Improve traffic navigation and reduce emissions
- Improve signage and wayfinding
A public tender was released to find a supplier who could provide a very extensive Traffic Management System. After a careful scrutiny the tender was awarded to MSR-Traffic. The tender includes new traffic signposts and LCD displays at a total of 50 locations.
After completion of planning and coordination tasks, the first phase started with the disassembly of all old signposts and displays. The civil engineering works for new wiring and foundations was the first step in installing the new smart parking system. The last step was to assemble all masts at about 50 locations, and one to five traffic signs incl. LCD display and radio module were mounted per location.
The data of the existing multi-storey car parks was transferred to the MSR-Traffic system via an interface of the barrier manufacturers. The ParkGard Control Center software now controls the dynamic displays and evaluates all parking processes. The open interface of the software allows linking to an app for parking seekers.
MSR-Traffic is glad to help the city improve traffic management and thus reduce emissions.
