The Paseo del Bajo has been inaugurated in the City of Buenos Aires, a mega work where Tecsidel was part. It is a road corridor of 7.1 kilometers that connects the south and north of the city in an agile way, creating at the same time new green spaces and recreation for the neighbors.
It consists of a highway without barriers only for trucks and long-distance buses modifying the way of moving in the whole area. It has parts in viaduct and others that run in trench.
Thanks to the "Free Flow" electronic reading gantries of Tecsidel, smart charging is implemented by eliminating barriers and toll booths. They are equipped with RFID antennas, intelligent vehicle classification system and electronic toll collection cameras and license plates that send all data to the Back Office allowing automatic collection.
Implementing the Free Flow toll system reduces infrastructure costs, ensures reliable operation without risk of fraud, increases traffic mobility, reduces congestion and pollution, improves road safety and increases user comfort.
The new corridor improves the circulation of more than 25,000 vehicles per day and its exclusive truck lanes allow faster transit to the port's direct accesses. The route where before it took 20 minutes, now is covered in 7.
It is very gratifying for Tecsidel to see a milestone fulfilled by working in a work of such transcendence for a city as active as Buenos Aires (Argentina).
