Winter road service is a number of activities necessary for winter road maintenance and for assuring normal road conditions and road safety in case of snow, glaze, frost etc.
The goal of the Slovene Roads Agency as the road management authority is to have an up-to-date, functional and efficient intelligence system providing real time information on weather and road conditions on specific road sections to interested end-users.
Weather data is split into two groups – data concerning air quality and data on road conditions due to the weather.
This information is useful for more efficient road maintenance with a higher quality of service and it is an important source of information also for other public services and interested public.
OMEGA consult has placed 86 road and weather stations on chosen sections of the national road network and included them in the road and weather conditions intelligence system.
Collected data is transferred to end-users using modern information and communication technology.
