Safe and secure parking infrastructure - works
|Description of call |
"Safe and secure parking infrastructure - works"
general objective is to modernise transport infrastructure on the Core and Comprehensive Networks of the TEN-T.
accordance with the Article 9(2)(b)(vii) of the CEF Regulation, the following Actions will be supported:
aiming at the development of new safe and secure parking areas on the road Core network and its nodes, or on the road Comprehensive
network if they primarily serve users of the road Core network, for trucks and commercial vehicles, according to the study

and, as from its entry into force, according to the Delegated act adopted in accordance with Regulation 561/2006 (including
safety and security Information and Communication Technologies);
- works aiming at upgrading the safety and security
of existing parking areas on the road Core network and its nodes, or on the road Comprehensive network if they primarily serve
users of the road Core network, for trucks and commercial vehicles, according to the study on EU Parking Standard (including
safety and security Information and Communication Technologies);
- works optimising the use of existing safe and secure
parking areas for trucks and commercial vehicles through static and dynamic information including the collection, processing
and dissemination of parking information. These interventions shall comply with Commission Delegated Regulation No (EU) 885/2013

accurate and reliable data from sensors, cameras or other monitoring devices and analyse priority zones needed, as defined
in Delegated Regulation No (EU) 885/2013, taking into account traffic conditions, infrastructure shortages or weaknesses and
If the Action is not located directly on the Core road network or if it is located on the
Comprehensive road network, the application has to justify its utility for the functioning of the Core Network.
