Paris-London Corridor


This international corridor forms the main route between France and the UK and is an important gateway for the remainder of Europe. The corridor comprises mainly of motorways but certain critical sections are by fixed and mobile river and sea crossings. The project aims principally to combine two ATT areas of major international interest, Travel and Traffic Information and Inter-Urban Traffic Management.

The project builds extensively on previous DRIVE work and results and will incorporate requirements for international cooperation, comment on aspects of public and private sectors provision and operation, as well as contribute to the standards debate.

Technical Approach

The project will design, implement and evaluate pilot systems for RDS-TMC, Trip-Planning Terminals, FM Radio, Paging, Cellular phones, in-car Navigation, Automatic traffic surveillance, Variable Message Signs, Fog monitoring and Automatic Vehicle Identification. These systems will operate in conjunction with an enhanced traffic and travel information and management service provided by interconnected Traffic Information Centres and Traffic Control Centres, both national and international.

Key Issues

The Key Issues relate to traffic information collection, weather monitoring, traffic control strategies. Information will be directed from these sources to Traffic Information Centres and disseminated to drivers using VMS, RDS-TMC, Paging and Cellular telephones. Evaluation methods and strategies for the field trials are also of key importance.

Expected Impacts

A demonstration of ATT to provide an Integrated Driver Information and Network Management System in the Paris-London Corridor.

Contribution to Standards

The project will provide significant input on the issues relating to the practical implementation of standards in ATT systems.
