To create detailed database on main international corridors.
The main activity used in the project is the data colection.
The ERIM Project, carried out in 2004-2007, has been based on a detailed database on main international corridors, mainly for freight, between 32 countries. The ERIM database is constituted of about 50,000 route-km divided into 1,100 interconnected line sections enabling the corridors to be redefined to suit any particular business or political configuration.
The main areas covered by the database are:
- Current and planned 2020 infrastructure provision (including detailed investment plans).
- Estimations on current and 2020 traffic volumes
- Estimations on current and 2020 capacity utilisation
The ERIM database is updated regularly and the UIC Atlas of Infrastructure in the ERIM Network is published on a yearly basis.
