Controlling urban access
Implementing sustainable mobility
The City of Trieste will create an urban access control system to monitor the traffic flows of cars and heavy vehicles entering and leaving the city through specific entry points near the Old Port. It will also control the usage of particular areas nearby, such as pedestrian areas and limited traffic zones.
The system will consist of cameras, detectors, and other monitoring devices. Pedestrian areas and limited traffic zones in the old city centre will be monitored to preserve soft mobility and guarantee that mobility rules are respected.
On the other hand, the monitoring of city access aims to collect traffic data that can be used in the city’s transport and urban planning, for new smart mobility solutions, and to enhance multimodal mobility systems.
In particular, traffic data will be used in SUMP development and will be fed into the transport information platform to provide real-time information.
As part of the measure, a pilot project will be implemented that involves the monitoring of a localised area (i.e. a pedestrian or limited traffic zone) in the old city centre and the installation of detectors in specific city access points.
