This year, the operating teams of the GEIE-TMB deploy an investment plan of about 14 million € for the Mont Blanc Tunnel.
The investment plan focuses on three main axes: quality of service to customers, safety of drivers and teams, and environmental preservation.
According to Radio Mont Blanc, to improve the quality of service and safety in the Mont Blanc Tunnel, video and radio systems will be replaced and switched from analog technology to digital technology.
According to Le Dauphine, this technology will offer the possibility of facial recognition of people inside the tunnel, the reading of license plates but also the broadcasting of all radio stations in the vehicles or even the use of mobile phones.
So, the Mont Blanc tunnel will be equipped with new cameras and a radio system that will allow better communication with the drivers, as well as a brand new emergency response vehicle (VPI) for firefighters.
