The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia embarked on one of the world most unique projects that will increase the number of pilgrims who will be able to pray in Makah by almost three folds. Ross & Baruzzini was responsible for the development of a new 6-mile Ring Road with several tunnels and over-passes to efficiently funnel vehicular traffic in and out of the holy areas. The sophisticated Intelligent Transportation System provides comprehensive video surveillance, traffic management, ramp control, and tunnel safety. The project design included hundreds of devices for vehicular detection, video management of incidents, information dissemination, and traffic control for surface roads and three tunnel segments. The system was interfaced with the Crowd Monitoring system to provide advisory status with crowding condition at the Haram area.
