ROAD

Road transport infrastructure and equipment

To cope with the increase in road mobility while improving environmental impact and safety, the authorities are undertaking maintenance, upgrading or constructing ever longer tunnels. At the same time, the coexistence of road and rail vehicles on the same roads requires special attention to safety.

In this context, GESTE's specialists bring a broad knowledge of safety and electromechanical equipment. We cover all phases of the project, from prior analysis to commissioning tests. We work on electromechanical and ventilation equipment in tunnels, car parks and depots, on level crossings and their signalling; we deal with the whole issue of rail/road coexistence; we oversee our projects while producing all the necessary safety files and studies.

Furthermore, in a rapidly evolving road mobility with the arrival of self-driving vehicles and convoys, we bring our expertise developed on automatic metro projects, among other things, in safety, signalling and managing automation and driverless vehicles.
