Activity 1 – Deployments in the Traffic Management Centres, Finland
The objective of this activity is to renew and purchase equipment to facilitate the use of the Road Traffic Management Integrated User Interface (T-LOIK) operator support system which will be the main operational tool for road traffic management centres used for situational awareness and traffic management. The activity will address the whole Finnish core network, with the aim of enhancing corridor performance for the mobility of people and goods, and to support and ensure the performance of the core network in Finland.
Activity 2 – Enhanced traffic management on core network Kempele-Kello, Finland
The objective of this activity is to deploy an integrated traffic management system on the motorway section Kempele-Kello on road E75 in Finland. The activity is targeting the high crash risks on the section by implementing variable speed limits and a Variable Message Sign (VMS) warning system. This activity will contribute to an improved Corridor performance and improved core network performance by reducing the risk of crashes and of crash related incidents and congestion, by harmonising traffic flow via variable speed limits, and by enhancing traffic management via integrated and more effective incident management tools.
Activity 3 – Motorway Control System (MCS) at E4/E20 Stockholm, Sweden
The objective of this activity is to replace parts of the Motorway Control System (MCS) at E4/E20 in Stockholm to increase its functionality. This activity is part of a global project to replace the MCS between Bredäng and Pampas (including the major Stockholm bypass Essingeleden) with a new system developed by the Swedish Transport Administration called LASSY.
The new equipment will offer better possibilities to manage traffic for the traffic management centres as the lane signals installed offer enhanced functionality. This will lead to greater possibilities to manage the traffic flows on the corridor in different situations.
Activity 4 – Motorway Control System (MCS) Gothenburg, Sweden
The objective of this activity is to equip the road stretch between Marieholm (E45) and Tingstad (E6) with Motorway Control System to bridge the gaps between the MCS that exist today and the ones that are being built to create complete coverage at important road stretches partly under construction, partly new.
This activity will ensure that there is consistent level of service on the road network through Gothenburg by equipping a stretch of the road without MCS between road stretches with MCS. This will enable traffic management operations on the complete road.
Activity 5 – MTLIV – Replace NTS with NGS, Sweden
The objective of this activity is to replace the National Traffic Management System (NTS) with a New Generation System (NGS) in four traffic management centres (Stockholm, Gothenburg, Malmö and Gävle).
NGS provides several benefits:
NGS is better prepared for the new technologies that are up and coming (i.e. autonomous vehicles, platooning and High Capacity Transports (HCT)).
It will be built up with different modules and can be easily expanded with new modules.
It will be easier to add new parts of the road network to the system, e.g. Bypass Stockholm that is currently being built.
The NGS will increase the possibilities for automation within the system. This will lead to quicker handling of differnet events which in turn will increase the network performance in connection to incidents on the road network.
NGS will be developed in cooperation with the Norwegian Public Roads Administration and will support and facilitate interoperability between Swedish and Norwegian traffic management centres.
Activity 6 – Deployments in the national Traffic Management Centre, Denmark
The objective of this activity is to enhance and improve Corridor and network performance. The activity will address the whole Danish core network, with the aim of enhancing corridor performance for the mobility of people and goods and to ensure the performance of the core network. The activity comprises a cluster of related tasks complementing each other and contributing to the overall goal of improved performance. The tasks includes acquisition of real-time traffic data, improved incident and emergency handling and adaption and distribution of traffic information.
Activity 7 – Traffic Information and Traffic Management Services, Germany
The objective of this activity is to fill the gaps for equipment to address improvements of network performance in northern and eastern Germany. This addresses traffic monitoring stations, monitoring for HGV parking, mobile devices for height control and speed warning, height control for tunnels and VMS. This activity will improve the traffic information on the Scandinavian-Mediterranean Corridor and the Core Network in Schleswig-Holstein between Denmark and Hamburg by a HGV parking system, mobile devices for height control and speed warnings, additional monitoring and VMS. It will further improve the network performance by advanced traffic management and in particular the connection between the urban road network of Berlin and the Core Network. It thus will contribute to improved corridor performance. The work is divided into four sub-activities:
Sub-activity 7.1 HGV Parking in Schleswig-Holstein
Ten rest areas will be equipped with detection (radar and laser scanner) devices to get information on the number of HGV (Heavy Goods Vehicle) on the parking area. With the information, the occupancy and free space of the rest area will be calculated. The information will then be integrated in the German single access point for service providers to use. With this information HGV drivers can see which rest areas have free space.
Sub-activity 7.2 Equipment in Tunnel Britz
This sub-activity addresses improvements in traffic management in the tunnel Britz on motorway A100. This sub-activity will install additional VMS replacing existing ones, additional sectional control stations and two height control systems.
Sub-activity 7.3 Optimisation of Congestion Warning System
This sub-activity will improve re-routing in the urban/interurban links between Berlin and the surrounding motorway A10 in the case of congestion. The route choice shall be influenced without generating traffic problems or congestion in the secondary network.
Sub-activity 7.4 Further improvements
This sub-activity will install:
A motorway control system between the motorway triangles Potsdam and Nuthetal southwest of Berlin on motorway A10
Four dWiSta (Dynamic Directories with integrated Traffic Jam Information) VMS including gantries and sub-centres on the Bremer Junction as part of the “Long Distance Corridor traffic management plan”.
Mobile devices for speed warning and height control at spots where needed. Two axle load measuring point will be installed.
Activity 8 – Traffic Centre development, Germany
The objective of this activity is to enhance and upgrade four Traffic Centres in: Schleswig-Holstein, Bremen, Saxony and Rostock to improve the performance of the traffic management centres in eastern and northern Germany to make them better suited for the requirements of future traffic management. The work is divided into two sub-activities, one covering the traffic management centre in Schleswig-Holstein and the other covering the traffic management system Rostock and traffic centres in Bremen and Saxony.
Activity 9 – Studies
This activity is divided into two sub-activities. The first aims at study the use of and improve real-time data and hazardous road weather monitoring. The other sub-activity address direct cooperation of different ITS Deployment Corridors and cooperation with other corridors or relevant ITS deployment actions, like C-ITS corridors and the C-roads platform, ITS deployment projects co-funded by the EC from cohesion funds, or between CEF Core Network Corridors. The common knowledge and generic harmonization aspects are performed in EU-EIP.
Activity 10 – Technical coordination
The objective of this activity is to cover all tasks related to the management of the project such as Project Management, Project Evaluation and Technical coordination.
