The BrennerLEC project is carried out in the context of a sensible area like the Alps with the objective of creating a holistic concept of “Lower Emission Corridor” (LEC) for the A22 highway. The project aims to implement and validate a set of different dynamic policies that have the goal to provide a clear environmental benefit in terms of air quality, climate protection and noise abatement, covering:
dynamic road capacity management (BLEC-ENV)
dynamic speed limits management (BLEC-AQ)
dynamic integrated traffic management (BLEC-LEZ).
The pilot demonstration is going to be carried out on an extensive pilot test area of the A22 highway. The project aims to give a significant contribution to the development of the environmental policies, even through the operational modalities with which these measures are going to be introduced.
The most innovative aspect of the project is the development of a forecasting model of meteorological, environmental and traffic conditions which is going to be at the basis of a proactive decision support system (DSS) aiming at optimally managing traffic flows and reducing environmental impacts in a very sensible area like the Alpine valleys.
