City of Balti as the second largest city in Moldova and a major center and transportation hub in the north of the country is confronted with serious traffic congestion problems, in particular during the peak hours. Traffic congestion causes many undesirable consequences for the inhabitants, visitors and transiting persons. These include loose of time in traffic jams, delays in public transport, lower road security and safety and higher possibility of accidents, longer reaction of emergency services, stress, air and noise pollution and higher energy (fuel) consumption
Solution: The project consists in implementing modern adaptive traffic control system that continuously adapts to actual traffic level detected by cameras with advanced data analytics combined with public transport priority at first selected intersection in Balti. It will also include new low-power and low-consumption traffic lights and up-to-date traffic control software. As a pilot project it will serve for training of involved collaborators of the Balti Municipality and its municipal organization DRCDfor the use of modern traffic control technologies and for evaluating the impact that the implementation of modern traffic technologies on larger scale would have in Balti. The project will set up a basis for modern urban traffic control in Balti allowing to add further functionalities in the future, such as priority of emergency vehicles at intersections and to scale up.
