    Abstract

    The main objective of the NEXT-ITS project was to improve the performance of the northern NEXT-ITS corridor i.e. to improve the efficiency and reliability of the corridor as well as safety and reduce the environmental impacts. This was to be done primarily through a Coordinated deployment of core European traffic information services in response to the European Priority Actions b) and c) of the ITS Directive. In addition, the impacts and hence the benefits were to be estimated and calculated. In all, the ex-ante evaluation gave very positive and encouraging results of the benefits of deployed services in this corridor having typically problems with heavy traffic load on some sections and/or rapidly changing weather. The group suggests the next step to be the ex-post evaluation of the same services.
