On November 12th, 2019 from 9.30 till 12.00, we are arranging our first task force workshop about Road corridor information document, Road-CID. The workshop will be held at BAST office in Bergish Gladbach near Cologne and will be prior to the workshop: ”future challenges for traffic management”. The workshop is carried out as a task within the Cross Corridor Cooperation (CCC) activity of EU EIP
ITS projects on corridors are often deployed in a similar manner but they are managed on a local, regional or national level and they are not connected to each other. Every separate organisation and traffic centre cares mostly for their own region or metropolitan area. But Corridors represent the perspective you get when you look on traffic from satellite; you see flows that form trans-European movements, mainly consisting of freight vehicles. From a corridor perspective, there is a need for some kind of descriptive umbrella and that should be provided through the Corridor Information Document, CID. CID is a type of document that is already used by the CEF Rail Freight Corridors. For CEF road corridors we will call it Road-CID so there will be no confusion.
The idea with Road-CID is to have one structured way of describing the corridors, which will be the first step to actually work on a corridor level. The Road-CID will contain descriptions of the general structure of the corridor like network overview including important hubs, terminals and bottlenecks and also which organisations that are concerned. It describes how the traffic management centres are structured as a series of interconnected traffic management areas. It also describes which ITS services (with focus on services relevant for corridor operation like HGV parking) that are available and where and especially which TMP´s that are in operation and how they connect. Hence the Road-CID will provide the reader with an understanding of the general structure of traffic management on the corridor level. A future Road-Cid will also contain information about for example geo-fencing, platooning and digital traffic rules.
The focus of this first workshop will be to discuss and outline a possible content description of a first generation of Road-CID. A first “candidate draft” for Road-CID will be circulated one week before the workshop as the basis for discussion.
