Implementation details

John Paul II avenue is one of the roads crossing the Zaspa district in Gdańsk – long and straight, prompts the drivers to develop too high speeds, as evidenced by numerous complaints filed by the local residents. To increase the safety of pedestrians, the Directorate for the Development of the City of Gdańsk commissioned us to build additional traffic lights at the height of the Church of Divine Providence.

The seemingly easy task turned out to be a demanding project, because the avenue was built on the remains of a German airport from the Second World War. In many places, concrete slabs were hidden under the asphalt, which had to be drilled during the works.

In addition, the construction was enriched with a non-standard Smart City modernization – at the height of the Church of Divine Providence we installed a road weather station connected to the Integrated Traffic Management System TRISTAR, enabling warnings about weather hazards and control of variable message boards.
