UICR supports the construction of a multimodal and secure parking hub in Latvia
UICR has signed today a letter of support for the construction of a secure parking are in Latvia, along the key route E67 of the Baltic region, known as “Via Baltica”. We perceive this project as highly valuable for the prevention of safety-related incidents. Safe and secure parking and rest areas are highly important for drivers to benefit from their rest periods in a safe environment with modern facilities which clearly improves their working and living conditions and makes the profession more attractive. We fully support the idea to ensure ITS-based navigation of trucks, ensure safety for drivers and cargo and provide a better service quality to truck drivers at rest areas. In addition, we would like to highlight that this project has an inherent potential to become a valuable example for other parking areas in Latvia, its neighbouring states and the entire European Union. We perceive it as a pioneering initiative for the EU-wide setup of a comprehensive network of safe and secure truck parking areas along the North Sea-Baltic TEN-T Core Network.
