ITD: Reactivate the electronic traffic boards

ITD requests the Danish government and the Danish People’s Party to give priority to funds for operation and development of the electronic traffic information boards on the Danish motorways. The investment will reduce congestion and increase road safety.

In March, the Danish Road Directorate pulled the plug to the electronic traffic information boards on the motorways. The provisional funds, marked for the financing, were at the time not prolonged, and hereby brand-new updates were at an end on emergency operations, vehicle queues and change in speed limits. Information having had a positive effect on both road safety and the traffic development.

 

ITD is frustrated, because no funds were marked on the Danish finance act for 2018 for continuous operation and development of the electronic traffic information boards.

 

- At ITD we looked forward to the finance act 2018 marking funds for the continuous operation and development of the electronic traffic boards. Unfortunately, that has not happened. Therefore, we request as quickly as possible to secure the continuous operation and work on developing the systems in future to be able to work with such as dynamic speed regulation and adjustable overtaking bans, says Jørn-Henrik Carstens, Senior Consultant at ITD.

 

In addition to contributing to increased road safety and a proper handling of the congestion problems, the boards are also an important element in the ongoing technology development of the infrastructure.

 

- The transport sector experience an increasing demand for making transport more safe, efficient and sustainable. Simultaneously, the technologic development and innovation in the industry lead to an increasing demand for new digital services. If Denmark is to seize the opportunities the development brings, it is necessary that we are in front using digital tools, and then it is a really bad idea to phase out traffic boards, Jørn-Henrik Carstens continues.

 

Now, ITD wants to enter into dialogue with relevant politicians to find financing possibilities. A possibility could be the funds in the finance act for 2018 for minor initiatives on the transport area implemented by negotiation partners and targeting minor transport and infrastructure initiatives. 50 million DKK have been marked for 2018 and 2019.
