This CEF-funded project aims at showcasing the setup of certified secure and connected parking areas in south-eastern Europe. It is embedded in a Global Project for the deployment of safe and secure truck parking areas at determined locations in Romania – namely Timisoara-Lugoj, Timisoara-Susani and Bucharest.
The kick-off conference was organized at the Brussels Press Club on 5 October 2016. It was held in the immediate run-up to the ESPORG Congress (ESPORG Conference on Safe and Connected Truck Parking Areas in Europe), so that a high level of visibility could be ensured and a high number of attendants joined.
The kick-off conference was attended by safe and secure parking operators, EU-level experts from the insurance sector, the safe parking sector, the ITS sector and major transport associations, including: IRU, UICR, ESPORG, GDV, Tank&Rast, DEKRA, Honeywell, Circle K (Statoil), SIEMENS and ITS Belgium. From Romania, a high-level delegation, including representatives of the Romanian Transport Ministry, concerned municipalities, the highway police in Timisoara county, engineers and architects, attended the kick-off conference. This delegation had previously visited the Kalken and Kruishoutem sites of the CEF project 2014-BE-TM-0193-W.
