A special bridge management system has been developed to optimally coordinate road and waterway traffic. This is an advice tool that tells the bridge operator whether it would be wise to open the bridge now or to wait a little longer. The tool considers registered vessels, road congestion, any emergency services and public transport. If a bus is running on time, the bridge can be opened as usual. But if the bus is already running late, the tool will allow the bus to cross the bridge before advice is given to open. This is how smart mobility is used to support a better balance between various interests. The bridge operator will, however, always remain in control. He or she will ultimately decide whether to open or close the bridge. The bridge management system is purely a means that helps them to operate the bridges more efficiently.
