At Lugoj in western Romania, four high safe and secure parking areas were developed by the Romanian company A&O with the support of the European Union’s Connecting Europe Facility Programme. They offer 180 parking places to trucks on the Orient-East Med Corridor of the European Union with state-of-the-art booking and payment facilities.
The parking areas were all certified by DEKRA as an independent third-party audit body on 24 January 2018. Thus, they demonstrably offer a very high standard in terms of security and services for truck drivers and transport companies.
Daniel Olariu, the Managing Director of A&O expresses his satisfaction about the opening the first level-four safe and secure parking area in the region: “Thanks to our efforts since 2015 and the financial support from the European Union we are offering the high level of security, comfort and connectivity that we have been aiming for.”
Dirk Penasse, the General Manager of ESPORG emphasizes: “We strongly welcome the opening of the first level-four parking area in the new EU Member States. This project is an inspiring good practice showing that innovative private investors are able and willing to successfully develop safe, secure and connected parking areas”.
