R&D projects at our Toll Roads

Here you will find full details of R&D projects that Ferrovial is developing in its Toll Roads division.

The development of new tolling schemes is a reality in the ManagedLanes project, which allows for variable tolls on different road sections as well as toll collection without requiring traffic to stop. It also involves other innovative mechanisms that allow for superior energy efficiency and the provision of new Internet services to users.

At the toll road concessions in Texas, Cintra is implementing the Drive on DFW application for declaring high-occupancy vehicles via messages from mobile devices. This will simplify the procedure for identifying vehicles with two or more occupants. The road safety and sustainable lighting proposal involves implementing LED-based lighting systems.
