“On one occasion the temperature of the road surface was well above zero, but in the dashboard our operators noticed the colour orange, indicating possible road ice. However, in current conditions it wasn’t cold. A phone call to one of the ice forecasters made us realize that the roads were indeed going to get slippery. The clear sky during the night was quickly making the road surface drop below zero, and this information allowed us to quickly mobilise our staff and equipment.”

“Ahead of any road ice season we catch up with each other. In the Autumn, we always inform each other, about new salting routes or measuring points. In addition, when Infoplaza, for instance, implements a new road surface model, we get notified. I like that communication.”
