Tunnel du Mont Blanc

Barco: When safety is an absolute must

The operators of the Mont Blanc tunnel, which links the Chamonix Valley in France to the Aosta Valley in Italy, know the importance of safety better than anyone. After a serious tunnel fire in 1999, huge investments were made to modify the tunnel and make it a world reference in terms of safety.

Today, all warning and immediate response functions are automated and supervised at two Command and Control Posts, on each side of the tunnel. They operate in tandem: one for control, the other for traffic information. Brandnew Barco video walls in the control and crisis rooms help keep an up-to-date overview.
