The signature event was held during the December 14th Capitalisation Workshop in Venice and was opened with a speech from Iolanda De Luca.
She expressed her thankfulness to the North Adriatic Sea Port Authority of Venice and Chioggia for their engagement in hosting this important event, SINA for the support in the organisation and the audience. She also highlighted some important moments regarding the URSA MAJOR neo project, especially about the benefits and advantages expected from this project.
She pointed out that…
…expected benefits will be a coordinated development of ITS on the Scan-Med corridor roads which will contribute to safer and fluent traffic flow and to the integration of traffic information on roads together with ports to steer the traffic more properly.
…the use of ITS will be crucial to enhance the multimodal information, the traffic management systems, the introduction of new technologies and innovation, the provision of appropriate parking space for commercial users offering an appropriate level of safety and security and the mitigation of congestion on existing roads.
...today, the URSA MAJOR neo is a reality and therefore, our common objectives will be reached only with a close cooperation of all actors, including private and public entities at all levels, with the aim of promoting and accelerating the deployment of harmonised digital solutions and the road safety and traffic efficiency too.
