Poland's General Directorate for National Roads and Motorways awarded a EUR 80 million contract to Alcatel-Lucent and Thales consortium to design, integrate, install and deploy the systems that will bring the A2 motorway up to EU commercial motorway standards. Alcatel-Lucent ,as the leader of the consortium, will project manage the integration, testing and deployment of a toll collection, emergency communications, traffic management, and a traffic statistics collection system, along the 100 kilometer section between Konin and Strykow. Alcatel-Lucent will also design and build a fiber optic communication system, which will be the transmission backbone for all the systems placed along the motorway. The project is targeted to be in service by the end of 2010.
