acesa and aucat have activated their special traffic plan for this weekend due to the long weekend caused by the Diada (Catalonia’s national holiday) falling on Tuesday, 11 September, with the aim of facilitating movement on their road network. Amongst other measures, the plan contemplates reinforcing motorway operations systems teams, as acesa and aucat usually do over such periods.
acesa and aucat will also be reinforcing their road conditions teams to reduce their areas of action and guarantee a swifter response to incidents. Similarly, the number of breakdown units will be increased, with the presence of large tow trucks for heavy goods vehicles and to provide motorway customers with the service they deserve.
New web sites with user information
So as to be able to provide users of their motorway network with an improved service, acesa and aucat have today launched their new web sites (www.autopistas.com and www.aucat.es). acesa’s new web site contains the real-time traffic status, as well as forecasts for the coming days. This information is complemented with data on French motorways.
They also incorporate new content of interest to customers, especially regarding the project for the widening of the AP-7 motorway. Construction work on the third lane of the AP-7 South is planned to begin this month, after last July saw the staring of preliminary work on the widening of structures, carried out from the outside of the motorway.
With a new, clearer design in line with the abertis Group corporate image, the new acesa web site provides visitors with information on user information services en route, the location of service areas, recommended itineraries, etc. Visitors may also access information on toll tariffs and applicable discounts, as well as the different motorway payment systems, especially the ViaT dynamic toll payment system. Additionally, the new site provides information on the company’s environmental protection policy, actions to preserve cultural heritage and road safety campaigns.
