The City of Gdynia City rights in 1926 With Sopot and Gdańsk forms the Tri-City agglomeration It has 250 000 inhabitants Port city, employment structure: 65.8% administration, trade, services, transport 33.2% industry and building 1% agriculture, forestry, fishing The total area -136km2 Forests and agricultural areas constitute – 63,6% Transportation areas – 9,7% Living areas - 11,3 % Industrial areas – 2,9% Roads in km – 387,26 Transportation routes 211,5 km No. of buses -185, trolleybuses -57, cars – 88 478
Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) – tools help to manage transport infrastructure and traveller service effectively. Intelligent infrastructure – transportation infrastructure equiped with telematics devices Intelligent vehicles – vehicles equiped with telematics devices ITS = intelligent infrastracture+intelligent vehicles
make a more effective use of the existing road and transportation infrastructure reduce accidents increase the effectiveness of rescue reduce congestion on the primary network improve travel conditions increase demand for public transportation increase demand for cycling monitor and protect the environment better manage all elements of the transportation system improve systems for informing drivers and travellers about traffic conditions reduce traffic flows in central area Transportation System Objectives
Transport Plans Regional Operation Programme for the Pomeranian Region 2007-2013 Strategic Plan for Pomeranian Region Strategic Plan for Gdynia Transport Policy for Gdynia Spatial Plan for Gdynia Integrated Development Public Transport Plan for 2004-2013 Gambit Gdynia TRISTAR integrated transport management system Bicycle paths concept Parking Charging System in the City Centre Ecological public tranport development Port of Gdynia Strategic Development Plan to 2015 Construction of Kwiatkowski route SUSTAINABLE URBAN TRANSPORT PLAN FOR GDYNIA 2006-2015 National Transport Policy to 2020 National Development Plan 2007-2013 with new Transport Strategy National Road Safety Programme (accomodated to EU Road Safety Programme) Revelant plans and programmes on regional level
To build the ITS we need to: build a team of people taking an interest in the system finalise the concept as part of “roundtable” discussions involving the relevant organisations, local authorities, road and traffic authorities promote the idea of the system on seminars and training courses develop pilot projects include TRISTAR in the strategies and plans of the region, cities and road and traffic authorities prepare applications for financial assistance prepare designs and specifications carry out the pilot projects continue to develop the system based on experience from the pilot projects
TRISTAR STAGES 1.The cities and road and traffic authorities build their own independent systems for transport management. Joint work will be critical to allow the adoption of common standards and guidelines. 2. 2. Transition stage - The cities and road and traffic authorities begin exchanging information between the management systems and use mutual help and services. 3. 3. Target stage - All sub-systems become integrated with TRISTAR.
System Architecture TRISTAR Integrated traffic management system Integrated transportation information system Integrated goods traffic management system Integrated public transportation management system Integrated rescue management system
PUBLIC TRANSPORT MANAGEMENT SYSTEM PUBLIC TRANSPORT MANAGEMENT SYSTEM IN GDYNIA (Gdańsk, SKM) PUBLIC TRANSPORT MANAGEMENT SYSTEM IN GDYNIA (Gdańsk, SKM) COORDINATION CENTER TRAFFIC MANAGEMENT CENTERS (Gdańsk,,Gdynia, Sopot) TRAFFIC MANAGEMENT CENTERS (Gdańsk,,Gdynia, Sopot) PT service information Passenger information Controlling PT vehicles Monitoring PT vehicles and stops TRISTAR TM TIS GT M PTM RM
PUBLIC TRANSPORT MANAGEMENT SYSTEM OBJECTIVES more people travelling by PT less people travelling by car less traffic congestion especially during peak hours more effective capacity use at crossroads reduction of travel time for public transport
PILOT PROJECT TRAFFIC CONTROL SYSTEM IN GDYNIA – PILOT PROJECT The first step to introduce ITS solutions (with priorities for PT)
PILOT PROJECT LOCATION 4 km section of Morska Street 8 different intersections. It is the busiest part of the street. one of the main communication arteries in the whole Tri City freight traffic to and from the port and traffic flows through to other areas of the Tri City region.
INSTALLING ITS ON MORSKA STREET changing the present controllers in the traffic lights, putting loop detectors in most street lanes, pedestrian detectors on crossroads, new traffic lights will be built on one intersection, Traffic Management Centre will be opened with a Central Management System, 50 buses and trolley buses will be equipped with special computer devices. fibre optic cables and GPRS will be used to transmit information.
EVALUATION An analysis of vehicle traffic and travel quality in PT before and after the implementation of ITS. Have we reached our objectives? INDICATORS: Travel time of PT vehicles Travel time of vehicles other than PT Traffic intensity on crossroads Number of bus passengers Conduct a survey among vehicle drivers and passengers Will a change occur in public transport travel and in general traffic, between “before” the implementation of ITS and “after” it? Our pilot action will provide Gdynia with the most valuable practical knowledge for the TRISTAR investment - to develop and improve the system.
1. decrease in delays in street network (up to 70%) 2. increase of capacity (up to 25 %) 3. improve traffic safety (decrease of accidents up to 80%) 4. environment improvement (reduce emissions up to 50%) 5. reduce expenditure on transport infrastructure (30 – 35%) Ratio cost/benefits for 10 years period in urban system – from 1,5 to 34, most effective are intersection control system and central areas management systems. Ratio cost/benefits for 10 years period in urban system – from 1,5 to 34, most effective are intersection control system and central areas management systems. public approval: 60–99% EFFECTIVENESS OF ITS
