The multi-year plan of actions developed by the Metropolitan City of Milan together with Safety21 and Municipia is one year old, during which it has been able to equip the territory with safer and monitored roads with the use of IoT technology, in fact from June 2020 to today the project has led to the installation of 96 devices on the provincial territory.
Progetto Sicurezza Milano Metropolitana is one of the largest integrated Smart City and Safety Road projects in Europe for the reduction of accidents to protect weak road users and to protect the territory and the environment.
A year later, the data provided by the Metropolitan Police highlight very positive aspects. The first of all concerns the conduct of users: 80% of citizens who have committed an infringement in the road sections covered by the interventions, today tend to respect the limits.
In terms of environmental protection, the abandonment of waste was countered by the numerous active video surveillance systems of the rest areas, which were also decisive for the production of evidence to support the investigations conducted by various police forces on other crimes.
Progetto Milano metropolitana, based on the innovative partnership tool, represents a virtuous example of collaboration between the Public Administration and High-level Technological Partners whose common intent is to guarantee the efficiency of public services aimed at the safety of citizens, the weakest users and the protection of the territory.
It is possible to consult all the initiatives of the Project on the dedicated information portal: a transparent channel aimed at citizens to increasingly involve citizens in understanding not only the project, but also the various aspects of road safety and protection of the territory: https://progettosicurezzamilanometropolitana.it
