At the start of the Arc Atlantique2 action an evaluation plan is worked out. The plan is based on the output of the EU EIP Activity 5. The EU EIP KPI Definitions as produced in version 10.0 – 8 February 2017 are used. This document has defined common KPI for ITS deployment and benefit to support evaluation reporting in conjunction with Member States and ITS Corridors and in alignment to the EC KPI shortlist.
The Arc Atlantique 2 Action will deliver ITS measures (Works) which will result in improvements to the TEN-T network included within the ‘Arc Atlantique’. The main objective of the evaluation plan is to specify the KPI’s for the evaluation of the different projects belonging to Arc Atlantique2 action.
The first set of KPI’s by which the corridor will be evaluated is the deployment KPI’s. As per the report of the EU EIP working group, these KPI’s can be linked to services, integrated services and level of quality. Within the Arc Atlantique 2 corridor action only KPI’s linked with services and integrated services are used.
The different deployment projects of the actions were classified according to the classifications used in the EasyWay Deployment Guidelines 2012. This also relates to the milestones of AA2. Per Deployment Guideline service ‘km’ is used as deployment KPI. EU EIP has developed a further list of services in alignment to the EU EIP KPI Definitions. All Arc Atlantique implementations have also been aligned to these defined services in terms of km of service deployed.
At the start of Arc Atlantique2 a map was available with the integrated level of service for traffic information and traffic management services (start of 2016).The Arc Atlantique 2 ultimately aims is to create a map to show the integrated level of service at the end of the programme (end of 2017).
17 projects will have an ex-post evaluation. Several KPI’s are used related to impact on safety, congestion and environment. Each of these projects will produce an evaluation report using the standard template and guidance provided by the EU EIP Evaluation working group. From these reports a short “one-page” synthesis will be extracted for the purpose of the corridor level Arc Atlantique 2 Evaluation Report.
