New smart system to reduce queues at roundabouts
27 March 2017 8:58

Long queues at certain approaches to some roundabouts could be reduced using magnetic detection devices under the road surface, which would activate a traffic metering signal at another, less congested approach. Researchers at the Universitat Politecnica de Valencia (Spain) have released a guide for technicians to implement this intelligent traffic system, already used on roundabouts in Australia and on various highway on-ramps.

Does the drop in Spanish high-speed train prices constitute an act of unfair competition?
13 March 2017 8:34

When the owner of the infrastructure and the train operator companies are both managed by the government, the rail infrastructure fee policy set may prompt unfair competition with other transport modes, such as the bus for short routes or the plane for long distances. This could be the case of the Spain’s state owned transport company, RENFE, and the railway infrastructure owner, ADIF, as an analysis carried out by a European team of researchers has shown. The prices of “AVE” high-speed train tickets, though they have now increased slightly, have been frozen since the 11% drop in 2013.
