The proposed checkpoints are located in key positions that were held during the war years by the former local militias. In the post-war scenario, all strategic positions are taken back by the national army and the local police. Our proposal plans for high-tech retractable and inhabitable structures that include monitoring systems. While at rest, the checkpoints are dissimulated below the tarmac, they are brought back above the surface when their operators are on duty. The checkpoints establish new road maps, they create another battlefield through which the whole territory is linked. The public transits through the selected points in the city, moves into the matrix to be referenced, crosschecked.. Public identification is shared by the competent authorities.
