LTC LIVE: Eindhoven Municipality
“Thanks to a new ‘live route planner’, visitors and residents in Eindhoven were still able to reach their destination easily”
The annual Eindhoven Marathon; a huge event, where the traffic needs to deal with roads that are closed off for short and for longer periods of time. There are also a lot of diversions. Thanks to a new ‘live route planner’, visitors and residents in Eindhoven were still able to reach their destination easily.
Omroep Brabant interviews Edgar de Veer from Marathon Eindhoven. He is happy that visitors and residents can now navigate the city much more easily. “For many people, the marathon is one big party. But there are also those who consider it a nuisance. We try to help these people as much as possible.”
The ‘live route planner’, LTC LIVE, processes all crossing points and the times of the fastest and the slowest runners. When a street is given the ‘all clear’, employees of Marathon Eindhoven send a signal to the route planner. This means that the online navigation-app is always up-to-date.
