A public tender regarding IT information was won by Slovak Telekom, and the website should be in operation in less than a year.
The new information system for drivers and passengers shall be created and operated for €21 million, the Denník N daily wrote.
“There will be information about the smoothness of traffic, closures, accidents, limitations, bypasses, road repairs – everything and all, including the passable or non-passable roads,” Transport Minister Ján Počiatek said when announcing the National System of Traffic Information and the tender.
The minister expects the novelty to bring information and serve not only traditional drivers, but also those who are going to travel by train, airplane or city public transport.
Slovak Telekom has not yet specified what will be offered for the millions. “In general, these will be items of information about traffic and traffic situations,” company spokesman Martin Vidan said for Denník N. “Their specific extent will be the result of an analysis.”
