In march 2019, I invited PIARC D.5 Road Tunnel Operations Committee, Workgroup 3 Human factors and ITS, to Bergen for a final meeting before papers being presented later this year on the world congress in Abu Dhabi.
The workgroup is working with a report on case studies and recommendations on provisions for persons of reduced mobility and a technology watch document on Intelligent Transports Systems (ITS).
A successful meeting where we got the opportunity to discuss and get new information from Norway and we where greatful for the contributions from the director of ITS-Norway, Trond Hovland.
And I also got the opportunity to show the members the best Bergen has to offer.
My contribution: Workgroup memeber, ITA-COSUF Liasson and expert adviser.
ITA COSUF is the Centre of Excellence for world-wide exchange of information and know-how regarding operational safety and security of underground facilities.
The World Road Association-PIARC was established in 1909. It brings together the road administrations of 122 governments and has members -individuals, companies, authorities and organizations- in over 140 countries. Within PIARC the Road Tunnel Operations Committee is focused on tunnel safety.
