The Polish road network lacks a single, integrated and coherent traffic management system in terms of operational and geographic organisation.
The Action is the first and most important phase of a Global Project aiming at implementing a single integrated Traffic Management (TM) system that allows the use of Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) services in approximately 3,100 km of roads.
This will contribute to the elimination of bottlenecks, provision of sustainable and effective transport systems, reduction of the number of casualties on the road network, and integration between transport modes. By 2021, it is expected that approximately 52.1 million of road users benefit directly from the implementation of the Action and traffic accidents rate is expected to be reduced considerably by the same date.
This Action will implement ITS services on approximately 1,100 km located along two Core Network Corridors (Baltic-Adriatic and North Sea-Baltic) in Poland. It includes the technical definition, supply and deployment of ICT, telematic components and infrastructure to be deployed along the road side and in dedicated traffic management centres. The main ITS services deployed include information about traffic conditions and travel times, incidents, weather conditions, dynamic designation of detours and smart and safe parking.
