    Research output: Contribution to conferenceConference articleProfessional


    NordicWay corridor project co-funded by Connected Europe Facility piloted cooperative services in the Nordic Countries using cellular network communication. The Finnish pilot provided road safety-related minimum universal traffic information services for road users. The purpose of this paper is to describe the assessment and results of socio-economic impacts of the service. In conclusion, if wide penetration of the system is achieved, societal benefits can be expected. These will originate from a drop in the number of accidents and consequent reduced delays in traffic. The benefit-cost ratio was assessed to be at least 2.3 for the period 2019–2030, assuming linear growth.
