(Mi-lorenteggio.com) Milan, May 23, 2023 – Milano Serravalle – Milano Tangenziali SpA – historical highway concessionaire headed by the FNM group, strongly committed to developing programs for increasingly inclusive, safe, sustainable mobility and friendly, yesterday he presented three innovative projects for the future of mobility in Lombardy at the Palazzo delle Stelline in Milan.
The event, organized by the Chairman Beniamino Lo Presti and the CEO Pietro Boiardi, together with the Chairman of FNM SpA, Andrea Gibelli, was attended by Alessandro Morelli, Undersecretary of the Board’s Presidency, as well as Claudia Maria Terzi, Councilor for Infrastructures, Franco Lucente, Councilor for Transport and Sustainable Mobility, Christian Malangone, Member of the Board of Directors of the Milano Cortina Foundation and Luigi Roth, President of Autostrada Pedemontana Lombarda.
The motorway network, of which Milano Serravalle – Milano Tangenziali is the concessionaire, surrounds the city of Milan and extends through a large part of Lombardy: from the West to the East ring road, from the North ring road to the innovative Rho-Monza section, recently inaugurated , until the A7 from Milan to Serravalle Scrivia.
For this reason, the regional road system will be a fundamental element for the success of the next Olympic Games to be even more marked.
The three projects that have been presented – Milan Green Door, Smart Road and Advanced Traffic Control Systems, Dynamic GIS & Digital Twin – are framed in the context of improvement and innovation of the Lombard infrastructure.
“Milano Green Door” is the first MaaS (Mobility as a Service) project in Italy. It involves the urban redevelopment of an area of the A7, at the entrance to the south gate of Milan, a fundamental junction for various destinations in the area, on which an information and tourism center will be built at the service of the city of Milan. , the Region and the upcoming Olympic Games, along with a new Courtesy Point for electronic toll collection and related services. A parking space will be available and, thanks to the collaboration with the FNM group, it will be possible to rent electric bicycles or electric cars. The project also includes the construction of a bike path that will connect to the existing one along Naviglio Pavese, a coworking and relaxation area equipped with state-of-the-art digital connections and healthy food distributors. The project is completed with the construction of a photovoltaic panel system that will self-power the site and generate one of the first energy communities.
The second project, “Smart Road and Advanced Traffic Control Systems”, concerns the creation of an intelligent infrastructure at the heart of the traffic of the Milanese ring roads: a dual-technology intelligent road that, combined with a technologically advanced traffic detection system advanced, it will make it possible to monitor traffic flows in real time, process forecasts and determine the consequent management and mitigation actions for disturbances. The new infrastructure will introduce a new way of driving around the ring roads, indicating recommended speeds and exits and providing more precise information on the distances covered and the way to tackle the journey.
Finally, the third project contemplates the implementation of two new technologies that will allow a more innovative and efficient management of the motorway network: the Dynamic GIS (Geographic Information System) and the so-called Digital Twin, that is, a digital replica of the entire infrastructure. Through state-of-the-art sensors and advanced technologies, the maintenance status of the infrastructure will be monitored and the programming of related interventions will be managed. By importing traffic data, it will be possible to carry out particular simulations to predict how these interventions impact the fluidity of mobility. The infrastructure’s Dynamic GIS system and Digital Twin will communicate with both the superstructure and artwork monitoring platforms and the Smart Road system.
After the presentation, Beniamino Lo Presti, president of Milano Serravalle – Milano Tangenziali SpA, underlined how “The title Towards the 2026 Olympic Games: the future opens its way is significant with respect to what our company wants to do. A new way of offering new services, digitized and sustainable. Because Milano Serravalle – Milano Serravalle has all the characteristics to keep faith in the objectives and the effects of this great event, intrinsically connected to the entire infrastructural layer of the Milanese and Lombard territory.”
The President of FNM SpA Andrea Gibelli commented the following: “We are here to announce projects that make us proud and place us within the objective of the Lombardy Region and of the entire group: the desire to fully integrate mobility on iron with that on rubber We need to break down the paradigm that has always seen them in competition and, to achieve this objective, we need to give correct information to users and citizens so that Lombard Smart Land allows them to make the best decision thanks to predictive models with a high technological and innovative value. ”.
Pietro Boiardi, CEO of Milano Serravalle – Milano Tangenziali SpA, presented the three projects the company is working on and will work on in the coming years ahead of the 2026 Milan – Cortina Olympic Games: “these three projects They are situated in all respects in a dynamic and innovative context that increasingly distinguishes our company in order to guarantee users an increasingly efficient mobility and road service.
With Smart Road and an advanced traffic control system, thanks to the use of algorithms and Artificial Intelligence, we will be able to predict and therefore be able to mitigate possible critical problems in our network.
But also the ambition to create a new road structure management system to improve the quality and safety of the service thanks to the creation of a digital twin of the infrastructure that will allow the evaluation of a large amount of data in real time and then run virtual simulations on Infrastructure works.
Finally, the will of our company to develop a project that addresses sustainability in 360 degrees, creating a true Green Gate on the outskirts of Milan. An integrated space in which interest in eco-sustainability will be combined with the desire to provide integrated services to users, citizens and all the tourists who will come for the Olympics, in such a way that it represents a true novelty in how the arrival of people and entry to Milan”.
Milano Serravalle – Milano Tangenziali SpA is the concessionaire of the A7 motorway, from Milan to Serravalle Scrivia, of the three Milanese ring roads – A50 West Ring Road, A51 East Ring Road, A52 North Ring Road – of the Pavia West Ring Road (A54) and the junction from the Bereguardo-Pavia highway (A53). The network, which extends over 187 km, is therefore at the center of one of the main European motorway networks.
