Project ID: PA1A137
The Hungarian section of the Danube river is 417 km long and an important part of the Rhine-Danube Corridor. As part of the TEN-T inland waterways, it has to be fitted with RIS in line with Directive 2005/44/EC.
The project aims to entirely replace the Hungarian Inland Navigation Information System (HIR), so that it can communicate with RIS components and services. The Action consists of works that optimize the Danube IWT.
The main objective of the Hungarian RIS is to create the conditions for a better and smoother use of the inland waterway, increasing the safety and efficiency of navigation and aligning, at the same time, the community of users involved through the sharing of easily accessible information.
The project consists of four activities:
The project will have positive impacts on the competitiveness of inland waterway transport, modal split, traffic management, service quality, safety and security.
