Parkway 6: Smarter motorways for easier travel

A major bottleneck in the Dutch motorway system is improved with increased lanes and smart traffic solutions. When the government decides to tackle a major congestion hot spot, it includes smart solutions by Dynniq to improve flow and safety.

Schiphol Airport has seen steady growth for decades, becoming a vital hub for the Dutch economy. However, its success has increased pressure on an already crowded motorway system in the heart of the Dutch ‘Randstad’. The Dutch infrastructure authority Rijkswaterstaat has commissioned large scale works to improve and increase road area and traffic flow.

The challenge

Tackling a major congestion hot spot by smart traffic solutions.

The solution

Dynniq is making the detailed design, delivering and installing all Dynamic Traffic Management parts: highway management systems, traffic controllers, lighting, dynamic route information panels (DRIPs), network, bus stations, power distribution. Construction companies Dura Vermeer and Besix are the main construction partners.

The result

Better traffic flow and improving road safety.

Parkway6 is the consortium responsible for widening and modernizing the motorway at Almere. Construction company Dura Vermeer and Besix are the main construction partners. Dynniq’s role is in making the detailed design, delivering and installing all DVM parts: highway management system, traffic controllers, lighting, DRIP, network, bus stations, power distribution.

Strong partnership

Within Parkway6, Dynniq provides smart services that will contribute to better traffic flow and improve road safety by reducing the chance of rear-end collisions for example. This will directly benefit the residents of Almere, who currently suffer from massive traffic congestion issues, and will also benefit the many people who travel to Schiphol from the north of the Netherlands.

For Dynniq, Parkway6 is an opportunity to cement its relationship with Dura Vermeer, one of the Netherlands foremost infrastructure construction firms. Furthermore, Dynniq has its own project team on site at the project location of Parkway6, and although formally a subcontractor, Dynniq is represented in both the management team and supervisory board of Parkway6. It is a long term relationship, with the contract including twenty years of maintenance starting in 2019.
