Achievements of the ITS corridors

Arc Atlantique

The Arc Atlantique Corridor delivers improvements to the Trans- European Road Network stretching from Ireland to Portugal through the wider deployment of ITS systems and services. Extending the cooperation of the previous phases, Arc Atlantique III continues the process of investment in harmonised ITS Services on the CEF Corridors “Atlantic” and “North Sea – Mediterranean”.


Within CROCODILE public authorities, road administrations and traffic information service providers of in total 13 European Member States are committed to set up and operate a data exchange infrastructure based on DATEX II.


MedTIS is a deployment project with objective to implement Road Safety Solutions, Traffic Management Services and Traveller Information Services on the TEN-T Mediterranean Corridor. MedTIS takes onboard TEN-T priorities and EC policy objectives to deliver high-level Travel Time Services and enhanced Traveller Information services including road user awareness to European travellers. Along a 8.000 km Corridor MedTIS Action involves 4 Member States from the European Union: France, Italy, Spain and Portugal: 27 road operators from these 4 countries are in charge of the onsite deployments of services and systems


As a follow up of the previous NEXT-ITS and NEXT-ITS 2 projects, the NEXT-ITS 3 project (2018-2020) covers the Northern part of the Scandinavian-Mediterranean corridor, including the core road network and the key comprehensive network links.


URSA MAJOR addresses first and foremost freight transport on the TEN-T road network in a corridor linking the most important economic regions between Rotterdam and Sicily. To accomplish this, 35 Road, Inland Terminal and Port Operators from 3 EU Member States (Italy, Germany, The Netherlands) have formed a consortium. Switzerland and Austria are included in their capacity as transit countries. The UMneo corridor represents one of the major TEN-T road axes in Europe. Removing bottlenecks through better traffic management and implementation of traffic management systems reduces delays and improves reliability of journey planning. Additionally, up to-date hazard warning systems (e.g. for roadworks) and improved incident management increase freight safety.
