Sumario: Installation of Intelligent Transportation Systems on Route 27 revolutionized transport infrastructure in Costa Rica.For the first time such systems were installed in a Costa Rican path as integral equipment, that collect and provide information 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.At Route 27 is installed a fiber optic network, that connects all elements of the system such as mobile cameras that are used to determine the state of the road,dynamic message signs to deliver information to users, data capture stations that not only count vehicles but that measure speed, detect congestion and generate alerts if vehicles travel in opposite direction.The installation was mainly for functional reasons as the concessionaire is responsible for the road so wants to know what happens to manage and plan events in the best way possible with the lower cost.The extension of these technologies used by the concessionaire to others projects in the country would contribute to show the real benefits of the concession system, that has not only invest and built the project itself but also bring new procedures and technologies to the country that makes this more efficient, productive and give a bigger quality of live to citizens.
