Vehicles anywhere in Poland will be weighed, measured and checked
Each of the 64 modern police cars will be equipped with car scales, sonometer, opacimeter, EOBD gauges and diagnostic tester. In the middle of the next year, the first specialized vans will go to voivodship road transport inspectorates. Today a contract was signed for their delivery.
“The services must be equipped with the most modern equipment that will eliminate technically inefficient cars, inefficient braking and steering systems and overloaded vehicles”, - said Minister of Infrastructure, Andrzej Adamczyk. “I am proud of the fact that in Poland, due to the Road Transport Inspection, we can use the support of the most modern equipment to increase road safety”, emphasized the Minister of Infrastructure.
“These vehicles will increase the effectiveness of the Road Transport Inspection in terms of ensuring safety on Polish roads, as well as ensuring the principles of fair competition in road transport”, emphasized the Chief Inspector of Road Transport, Alvin Gajadhur.
Police cars were purchased as part of the project “Strengthening the potential of the Road Transport Inspection” and will be used primarily to control trucks and buses. The cost of the vans is over PLN 28 million.
Testers, police cars, mobile diagnostic units - Inspection strengthens its potential
The purchase of vans is the next stage of the implementation of a multi-million project co-financed from the funds under the Operational Program Infrastructure and Environment 2014-2020. Inspectors throughout Poland already use 64 specialized vehicle and tachograph inspection kits in their daily work. The procedure of purchasing 16 Mobile Diagnostic Units, with the use of which there will be comprehensive inspections of the technical condition of vehicles, is also underway.
“We are currently using 3, and there will be additional 16 units. Portable diagnostic stations eliminate cars in poor technical condition from traffic. So far the inspection results show that their effectiveness reaches even 40%”, emphasized the effectiveness of the devices ITD head, Alvin Gajadhur.
The equipment and devices purchased under the project will be handed over to the voivodship road transport inspectorates for free use. Thanks to the implementation of the project, the Road Transport Inspection will be equipped with modern, technically and technologically advanced equipment, vehicles and a package of specialized trainings to increase the efficiency of road inspections. The project implementation cost is PLN 62 million, of which 85% is financed by the European Union.
