Alba Iulia (Romania)
Alba Iulia is a medium-sized city in central Romania. It is an emerging tourist destination due to its historical heritage, with tourism driving economic development. The city experiences heavy road traffic: its main roads and traffic arteries are now too small to accommodate the increased number of vehicles and there is insufficient parking in the city. Efforts to tackle congestion link closely to Alba Iulia’s smart city work, with sustainable mobility solutions being developed under the governmental Smart City 2018 pilot project. These also tie into planned improvements to the public transport system serving the city and seven neighbouring localities. Within its city lab, Alba Iulia will develop links between mobility, tourism and education and upscale its mobility-related smart city pilots.
