As of yesterday, the new Info Vias application was available for download.
Although formally presented today, the new app, which cost around 20 thousand euros, is designed to allow the region’s drivers to monitor the state of traffic with regards to congestion, accidents and other information in real time. The Info Vias App, is the result of joint collaboration between ViaLitoral, Via Expresso, the Regional Directorate of Roads and the Public Security Police.
In his statement, the Regional Secretary for Equipment and Infrastructure added:
“About a year ago, the Regional Government challenged the concessionaires, ViaLitoral and Via Expresso, to create a mobile application that would provide a tool to obtain information about the state of traffic on the regional road network, which would include up to the minute details of congestion, traffic problems/accidents and any other useful information which will help motorists, promote road safety and technically, make driving easier.”
The App can be downloaded for free from the App Store and Google Play, in both Portuguese and English.
