Communications and Information Society minister Lucian Sova suggested that the Smart City concept could help Romania’s infrastructure and improve the road traffic.

Alba Iulia Smart City 2018 is a national project that aims to build the smartest and most technologically developed city in Romania. Sova published the Smart City Guide last year. The document represents the foundation of the biggest IT infrastructure project in Romania that will be finished by December 1 2018 in Alba Iulia.

“It is clear that we need to adopt tech solutions, other than the classic ones (…) we need to face that all the urban communities in Romania confronts with road traffic problems, management problems and public lighting. I think that under these circumstances all the mayors needs to engage in modern technologies like smart city,” stated Sova, according to Agerpres.

A recent study of Siemens Company in partnership with Alba Iulia City Hall showed that Alba Iulia’s smart technology could generate benefits of EUR 532 million in the next three decades.
