CROCODILE Technical Workshop: Digitalisation of cross-border traffic management
The CROCODILE corridor unites public authorities, road administrations and traffic information service providers of 7 European Member States. Co-financed by the Connecting Europe Facility, they are committed to cross-border data exchange and harmonisation on different layers.In the course of the pan-European vision of a free movement of people and goods, it is obvious that traffic management strategies must not be limited to national borders. The CROCODILE corridor responds to the apparent need for cross-border traffic management by consolidating authorities and road operators and providing a forum for collaboration. Data is an important basis for modern traffic management and it became apparent that motorway operators already have many relevant management strategies available. CROCODILE has provided the ground for converging efforts on technical, organisational and dissemination level. Five Central European motorway operators have put a common application for the digitalisation and coordination of Traffic Management Plans (TMPs) into place and progressed to self-managing their cooperation. Next steps will include a broad dissemination strategy to introduce the advantages of the application to other operators. On end-user level, this shall help to build up and increase customer trust, thus encouraging behaviour in accordance with the intended operator strategies.
