BrennerLEC After LIFE (2022-2027)
"BrennerLEC After Life" is the natural continuation of BrennerLEC, the project which ended in 2021 and which demonstrated that dynamic speed reduction achieves two goals: reducing harmful emissions and shortening travel times on days with intense traffic. For this reason, the partners of the initiative, Autostrada del Brennero with the Environmental Agencies of Trento and Bolzano, the University of Trento, Cisma and NOI Techpark Südtirol/Alto Adige, have decided to continue their collaboration even outside of the EU cofinanced programme. By extending the stretches subject to speed  reduction,  both  for  environmental  and traffic management purposes, the strategic collaboration started in 2016 is to be maintained. The aim is to continue developing the implemented technological system and continue  monitoring  the  benefits associated  with  the traffic management  measures,  preparing  an  annual report on air quality near the main urban areas along the motorway. Further measures for the future will be considered on the basis of the results obtained.  

LIFE Alps (2019-2027)
Project aimed at catalyzing the development of a zero-emission road transport system in South Tyrol, along the Brenner corridor and in the neighbouring regions.


The "Strategic Plan for the Activation of Sustainable Mobility in South Tyrol" includes zero-emission, ongoing and planned transport projects and services, including those specified in the LIFE alps project (2019-2026), promoted within the LIFE Integrated Projects 2017 call of the European Commission. The aim of the LIFE project is to catalyze the development of a zero-emission road transport system in South Tyrol, along the Brenner corridor (the main European traffic axis) and in the neighboring regions.

The introduction of zero emission vehicles in public and private sector services will contribute to a significant reduction in pollution in the Alpine area and define a path to complete decarbonisation of the local transport system by exploiting local renewable fuels (hydrogen and electricity), using hydropower and other renewable resources available in the area.

By establishing "Model Municipalities", with diversified zero-emission services, South Tyrol will be an example, demonstrating how a combination of early use of zero emission vehicles by public agencies and private companies, together with smart regional policies, is able to stimulate the widespread adoption of zero-emission services at regional level.

An important part of LIFE alps also concerns the identification of numerous actions being complementary to the main project activities: from the installation of electric and hydrogen charging equipment, to the deployment of vehicles financed by a series of public and private, regional and European bodies.

The complementary activities include the use of renewable sources for the production of green energy to be supplied at refueling and recharging stations in service in Bolzano, Merano (BZ), in various municipalities of the Venosta Valley, in Brunico and in Affi.

Within the LIFE alps project Autostrada del Brennero SpA will concretely have two main tasks:

  • creating a hydrogen distributor in Verona Nord;
  •  as a complementary activity, albeit not co-financed by the project, installing electric recharging points along the motorway axis.

The activity implemented by the Company within the project will contribute to extend the supply of zero-emission services outside South Tyrol, thus contributing to provide an infrastructure, complementary to the South Tyrol one, capable of guaranteeing a charging network that encourages the adoption of zero-emission vehicles, both private and public, in several European regions.

PoDIUM (2022-2025)
Project aimed at the implementation of an ICT infrastructure towards the automation of the road transport.

A project of the European Horizon Europe Programme with the objective of implementing specific use cases of connected and autonomous driving (both in urban and motorway environments), demonstrated and validated under real-life conditions in 3 Living Labs of the project in Germany, Italy and Spain, also involving cross-border locations and crucial motorway physical structures such as tunnels.

The proposed use cases aim in particular to advance a number of key physical and digital infrastructure technologies (PDI). A multi-connectivity approach is followed in the project to ensure reliability, availability and redundancy of the POI system.

The company is involved in the use case 'Risk Management in a Motorway Tunnel'. The objective of this motorway use case is to quantify the risk level of a tunnel and use it to adapt the level of automation of connected/cooperating vehicles on approach in advance.

MERIDIAN (2021-2025)
Project aimed at assessing the potential of 5G for connected and automated driving.

It aims to promote the digitisation of the mobility system, focusing mainly on the CEF core network corridors Scandinavian-Mediterranean and North Sea-Baltic, by implementing digital systems and services along Europe's busiest freight transport corridors. Its implementations will support the common goals of increasing traffic safety and reducing congestion and environmental pollution.

The company is involved in the following tasks:

  • Task 1.03 'Cross-border cooperation', within which the "Digital Green Brenner Corridor" technical working group coordinated by Autostrada del Brennero was set up
  •  Task 4.10 "Creation of a MaaS integration layer and extension of the infrastructure to reduce pollutant emissions".

Creation of a MaaS integration layer

Creation of a management dashboard and a real-time multimodal/intermodal Trip Planning engine that uses the traffic data available along the corridor, exposing the route calculation functions to third parties.
Specifically, the project aims to create a true digital infrastructure capable of

  • being a collector of mobility data from motorway concessionaires and the various transport services operating in the neighbouring territories
  •  being an enabling layer for third-party services and provide both open data and open services on mobility.

The project is unique in that it aims at the construction of a European digital motorway corridor, bringing together infrastructures and services from different geographical, national and cross-border areas.

Extension of infrastructure to reduce pollutant emissions

The company is integrating low-cost air quality measurement sensors, traffic detection systems (coils/TVCC) and variable message signs (photovoltaic and non-photovoltaic) in order to extend the traffic management measures implemented as part of the European BrennerLEC project to increase motorway capacity and reduce emissions, thereby achieving the environmental objectives of the action.


Pass4Core-ITA 2 (2021-2024)

The project of the European Connecting Europe Facility 2 Programme (CEF 2) sees Autostrada del Brennero as coordinator and consists in the development of a network of safe parking areas for heavy goods vehicles (SSTPA) along the Italian TEN-T road network. All parking areas will be built to the highest standards of safety, security, quality, connectivity and transparency, according to the EU parking standard of the Safe and Secure Parking Study MOVE/C1/2017-500.

The company plans to certify three HGV parking areas according to European standards:

Sadobre (BZ)

  • realisation of an ICT infrastructure for the surveillance of the parking area
  • enhancement of the lighting system
  • adaptation of procedures to achieve the requirements for certification

Bronze certification


Trento Nord/Interbrennero (TN)

  • construction of toilets and showers for drivers of heavy vehicles, divided into men and women
  • upgrading of the access track
  • creation of an infrastructure for surveillance and access to the parking area
  • upgrading of the lighting system
  • adaptation of procedures to meet the requirements for the certification

NAPCORE (2021-2024)
Project to improve the interoperability of National Access Points (NAPs) for European mobility data exchange


Co-funded by a support action under the European Commission's CEF programme, NAPCORE was launched as a coordination mechanism to improve the interoperability of National Access Points as the backbone of European mobility data exchange. NAPCORE improves the interoperability of mobility data in Europe through the harmonisation and alignment of mobility data standards. Furthermore, NAPCORE increases access to data and widens their availability for mobility through coordinated access to data and better harmonisation of European NAPs. NAPCORE also strengthens national access points and national administrations by defining and implementing common procedures and strategies, strengthening the position and role of NAPs, and supporting steps towards creating solutions at European level to better facilitate the use of data at European level.
