SALFO was assigned the "Traffic Management Study and Optimization of Traffic Flow for Athens, Sector 3". Sector 3 contains 960 intersections - 180 are signalized. The aim of the Client was to investigate the traffic conditions of the study area that will arise during the typical pre-Olympic period after the operation of major road works that support Olympic Games.
