The level of motorization is constantly increasing with the growth of the economic potential of the Republic of Belarus and the Republic of Poland. The development of the road network is always lagging behind the rate of growth of motorization which results in the decrease of the capacity of the road network, the growing number of accidents, the environmental degradation, the increasing number of social and economic losses, the reduction of the efficiency of transport. The implementation of automatic traffic management systems (ATMs) is the aim of the project in Brest. The introduction of ATMs will reduce the time of traffic working in the streets of Brest, with subsequent access to the TRANS-European corridor II (E-30). It is expected to increase the capacity of the road network up to 15 - 20%, to reduce the accident rate by 10-15%, to reduce driving period by 10 to 15%, to increase transport attraction.
