Special FeatureLayer : Genovese bridge incident

Postby Bernd Welter » Fri Sep 07, 2018 3:18 pm

Hi there,

as we all know the Ponte Morandi (=Morandi Bridge = Morandi Brücke) in Genovese (Genova / Genua) collapsed in August 2018. Due to the incident several roads cannot be used and some players asked us whether we can handle this topic and it's derived consequences with xRoute and xMap server.
Our data department produced a special Feature Layer that contains several blockings of the affected streets.

By applying the additional data you can compute detours around the are of the incident.

On the left side: a route that avoids the critical segments by applying the PTV_TruckAttributes layer
On the right side: a route that uses critical segments and raises violations.

Please get in touch with your technical counterpart at PTV to get further info about the special layer.

Best regards,

Please check this generic post about how to deal with construction sites, too.
