Over the past two years the East-West Corridor of the EU EIP project has made an inventory of ITS projects that are or have been implemented on the EWC and these projects have been categorised. The results are now accessible via the EWC GIS tool at the following url: www.mobycon.nl/eastwestcorridor.
The East-West Corridor project inventory GIS tool is a web application designed to visualize the various types of ITS projects implemented on the EWC network. It can be used without particular expertise by all interested parties that want to know more about the type of ITS projects implemented on this corridor. It allows the users to search for specific ITS implementations on the EWC.
Source of projects
This GIS tool provides an overview of approximately 250 ITS projects on the East West Corridor. The ITS projects included are provided by partners of the EU EIP project. These projects can be financed either nationally or with European co-funding (e.g. CEF). The projects in the GIS tool come from either of the following sources:
Arc Atlantique (CEF ITS corridor project)
Next-ITS (CEF ITS Corridor project)
URSA MAJOR (CEF ITS Corridor project)
Project lists from Belgium, Estonia, Germany, Ireland, Poland, The Netherlands
Types of ITS projects
All ITS projects in this GIS tool have been categorised under one or more of the following types of ITS implementations:
Dynamic lane management
Speed Limit Information & Variable Speed Limit
Hard Shoulder Running
HGV Overtaking Ban
Roadwork and Hazard Warning
Static Truck Parking Information including Security
Dynamic Truck Parking Information
Truck Parking Optimisation
National Traffic Management Plans
Cross-border Traffic Management Plans
International Traffic Management Plans
National Access Point for Safe and Secure Truck Parking (NAP SSTP)
National Access Point for Safety Related Traffic Information Services (NAP SRTI)
National Access Point for Real-Time Traffic Information Services (NAP RTTI)
National Access Point for Multimodal Travel Information Services (NAP MMTIS)
Floating Car Data / Probe Vehicle Data
Traffic Management Centre (TMC) systems
Traffic Information Service
Other (e.g. port related projects).
The user can select one or more of these types of ITS implementations, which will then be shown on the map.
About the East-West Corridor
The East-West Corridor (EWC) integrates the European CEF corridors North Sea – Baltic and North Sea – Mediterranean, including links to crossing North – South corridors. It runs from Ireland/UK via the Benelux, Northern France and Germany to Poland, the Baltic States and Southern Finland (and vice versa).
The East-West Corridor is a sub-activity of the European ITS Platform (www.its-platform.eu) and aims at the promotion of the use of harmonized ITS for an optimized utilization of the physical infrastructure on the East-West Corridor, including intermodal transport.
