Autostrada del Brennero, founded in 1959, is shared by public capital for an amount larger than 80%, and employs about 1000 people.
Substantial investments have been dedicated to the infrastructure: currently there are 29 tunnels and 101 bridges/viaducts; a wide variety of sensors (traffic sensors, weather/fog sensors, video cameras, etc) and a high-speed data network guarantees a close monitoring of the traffic and environmental conditions.
Automatic incident detection systems as well as co-operative traffic management and user information systems guarantee an efficient management of the highway.
