Cityregion Eindhoven, in the Netherlands, has awarded Strukton Systems a contract to supply a dynamic passenger information system (DPIS) for the greater Eindhoven area.
The contract is part of the Eindhoven region’s second High-Quality Public Transport Axis (HPT2) programme, which will extend from Nuenen via Woensel, Eindhoven Station and the city centre, to High Tech Campus Eindhoven.
The HPT2 project, which will be executed in phases, is due for completion by mid-2016.
Strukton’s project involves designing, supplying and maintaining the DPIS and its display panels at the public transport stops that are part of HPT2 in Eindhoven and Nuenen, as well as the public transport stops that are part of HPT1 in Eindhoven and Veldhoven, replacing the existing displays.
The systems will also be installed at the public transport stops that are part of the regional arterial axes, as well as at other heavily-used stops in the region, mainly as a replacement for existing DPIS sites that have been written off.
Strukton’s DPIS provides travellers with up-to-date information on the location of specific vehicles, arrival and departure times and platform allocations.
Initial delivery includes 55 display panels in four different types, with the full DPIS and its local systems to be installed in the next four years.
The contract comes with an option for the supply, installation and link-up of additional panels to the DPIS.
Cityregion Eindhoven is a public body that promotes the interests of 21 municipalities in the greater Eindhoven area.
