Managing the mobility of an entire country in an efficient and useful way for citizens is one of the great challenges that governments around the world are currently facing. This management, which requires making decisions that have a great impact on the future of a state, can reduce the level of uncertainty if if we count on the right partners and mobility studies.
In order to understand the current situation of its territory, the Panamanian Ministry of Public Works awarded the Typsa Group the Road Asset Management project. As part of this project, Vectio was the company in charge of carrying out an in-depth study of the traffic on the roads in various provinces of the country.
To this end, Vectio carried out all the necessary work to enable a correct diagnosis of the current situation, as well as future forecasts.
The study took place at more than 25 points throughout the country, including 8 on urban roads in Panama and 18 at specific points on interurban roads. Subsequent to the field work, information gathering and processing tasks were carried out to obtain the values required in the project's RFP.
The result has been a complete mapping of traffic along the different provinces studied and its projection in the future that will allow the Ministry of Public Works of Panama to continue working with better information for large-scale mobility projects in the country.
