There are three maintenance areas (OUAs) arranged along the Rusocin – Toruń section of the motorway: in Pelplin, Nowe Marzy and Grabowiec. OUAs are reserved solely for the road maintenance services. Their duties consist in keeping the road and its auxiliary facilities operational in the summer and winter, ensuring technical supervision over the repair works, organising and controlling the traffic, and clearing up incident sites. The OUA Pelplin includes the Motorway Management Centre operating 24 hours a day, and the Customer Service Centre. The Motorway Management Centre (CKR) plays the role of the “command post” for the works and actions taken on the road and sees to the safety and comfort of the road users. CKR cooperates directly with the Road Patrol, the maintenance service, and the toll collecting teams at the gates. The hub receives information from all observation systems and reporting units on the motorway – the meteorological stations, emergency phone booths, speed, weight and traffic intensity meters, etc. CKR analyses the data and issues instructions adequate to cope with the specific situation. For instance, it calls in the proper rescue forces to a road accident, distributes information on the driving conditions, and if a traffic lane is blocked or closed, its duty is to pass the information promptly to the drivers and alert the media about the traffic obstacles.
