Research centre strikes to make roads safer in winter
One of research teams from Research Centre of the University of Žilina developed automatic antifreezing spraying system in order to prevent black ice from forming on road surface. System is already beeing installed on the road II/534 from Poprad to the town of Vysoké Tatry and is going to be on the test run until the end of year 2020. The first phase of the project aims to prevent formation of black ice before maintenance vehicles can come while the second phase aims to completely omit the necessity of maintenance vehicles presence. This unique system will be used for the first time in Slovakia.
