Klimkovice tunnel control centre

The control centre of Klimkovice tunnel on motorway D1 is located on the ground floor of the Motorway Management and Maintenance Centre in Ostrava. The staff of the Czech Road and Motorway Directorate monitor the tunnel here in terms of operation and reliable function of technologies in a non-stop service.

The station also serves for monitoring the Hřebeš tunnel in the Svitavy region.

This tunnel control centre controls variable traffic signs and variable messages signs according to predefined rules. Based on the data received from the detectors and sensors, it is, for example, possible to close the tunnel automatically and divert the traffic to alternative routes or direct it into a single tunnel tube in cooperation with the tunnel operators and the Motorway Management and Maintenance Centre staff.

Information about the traffic situation in both tunnels is shared with the NTIC.
