Over the past two decades trade has increased significantly between the eastern and western part of Europe. Consequently, also passenger and freight traffic increased with the same speed. Many ITS corridor projects are oriented North – South, and therefore East West Corridor Activity of the EU EIP project aimed at studying the feasibility of seamless, continuous and harmonized ITS services on the East-West corridor (EWC), including a first pilot implementation of a dedicated intermodal route planner for the East West Corridor.
The EWC runs from Ireland, via UK, Benelux, Germany and Poland to the Baltic States and Finland, and thus links the CEF corridors North Sea – Mediterranean (purple) and North Sea – Baltic (red) and the Finnish part of Scandinavia – Mediterranean (pink), including interfaces to crossing North-South corridors.
