The Motorway Management Center (MMC) operates on a 24/7 basis throughout the year covering all operation needs of the Motorway.
It is equipped with trained and specialized personnel, ready to manage each one of the 23,000 incidents recorded each year on the Motorway, such as:
- Traffic congestion
- Car accidents
- Immobilized vehicles
- Problems in the motorway infrastructure or equipment
- Adverse weather conditions
The MMC coordinates all agencies involved in incident response, whilst patrol staff and specialized crews undertake onsite action in order to ensure:
- immediate response and securing of the incident area in order to lower the possibilities of a secondary incident;
- timely provision of information to passing drivers on the incidents, heavy weather conditions, etc.
All of these aim to enhance road safety and better serve the users of the Motorway.
