Automatic Systems' barriers, 495 barriers BL 229 and 106 barriers BL 229 Toll, will serve the Toll Highway Network in the Catalonia region and the highways around Barcelona, Girona and Tarragona.
The delivery of the barriers is expected to be completed by July this year.
"Automatic Systems has been working directly with Abertis Autopistas since 2013 in various highway toll projects across Spain and we are delighted to have been selected to complete another project with the company. Over the years, Automatic Systems has participated to numerous projects in the Spanish highway market and today our barriers can be found across the whole peninsula", Javier Martinez - Automatic Systems' Regional Director, Spain.
While the BL 229-type barriers will be used to grant access to the highways, the BL 229 Toll barriers are instead used to allow exiting the highways.
