It’s possible to go much further in integration, as the Walloon capital has done since 2019 by investing in an Intelligent Traffic System aiming to improve the traffic flow and facilitate multi-modality. Equans installed ANPR cameras on the entry routes, a dynamic display, and parking as well as pollution sensors... In a later phase, we were awarded additional contracts for the installation of cyclist and pedestrian sensors to monitor soft mobility, and recently for vehicle access control in pedestrian areas. In Brussels, our teams also surrounded the Low Emission Zone with nearly 400 ANPR cameras.
Maxime De Bel: “We took part in the European C-Roads pilot project, a communicating road enabling direct dialogue with vehicles. A test section was equipped on the E24/E40 link. With the TRADEMEX project, Equans is taking part in the counting and classification of vehicles on Walloon roads (structural network) and with its partner Macq, is developing a model that will allow us to find out the traffic density in real time on the 8,000 sections in the Walloon road network. Another pilot project enables us to dynamically weigh trucks based on the deformation of bridge decks!”
Through these projects, Equans is positioning itself as the Walloon Region's partner for the development of the infrastructure of the future. Furthermore, Equans is very active in the deployment of charging points for electric vehicles, including the back office, for provinces or municipalities.
