On 10 May 2021 a kick-off event was held in Curtici at the office of the beneficiary Trans Trans Combi S.R.L.. There was representation from the local, regional and European levels. The event marked the formal start of the project after the application procedure. Important next steps for the project are detailed plans, the building permit and the start of civil works.
At Curtici, near the Romanian-Hungarian border, a new safe and secure parking area will be deployed with 180 parking spaces for trucks.
It will be located at the rail-road terminal of Curtici in close proximity to the Romanian motorway E 671.
The parking area will be easily accessible from both sides of the motorway. Moreover, it will provide a significant contribution to clean energy deployment through its use of solar panels.
It will also be equipped with smart parking management systems and connectivity solutions with public and private mobility services. The project is managed by Trans Trans Combi S.R.L.
This prime location will ensure significant demand by truck companies and provide multimodal services in line with topical security, safety, and transport policy considerations.
The SSTPA in Curtici will have several construction phases. The first phase will deliver 190 parking places for trucks and a services building with amenities such as restrooms, showers, vending machines for food and drinks, seating areas, security and the deployment of a Parking Management System.
In a later phase a fuel station and a restaurant will be added. A self-service hotel is one of the services that is still under analysis.
The new SSTPA in Curtici is part of a global project for 4 SSTPA’s in Romania and Hungary. Two of them are greenfield projects (Curtici – RO and Kiskunfeligyhaza – HU) and two are upgrades (Nagykanisza and Hatvan , both in Hungary).
The new SSTPA will serve as a showcase for the other SSTPAs foreseen in the Global Project, especially in terms of end-to-end ITS solutions for gold-level SSTPAs, in accordance with the requirements of the Directive 2010/40/EU and the Delegated Regulation 885/2013/EU.
The overall objective of the project is to support the optimal integration and interconnection of all transport modes, by enhancing accessibility and connectivity, reducing infrastructure quality gaps between the EU Member States, and by delivering benefits for freight transport, and enhancing service quality for the haulage industry.
The project is therefore expected to enhance road transport safety and security along the Romania – Hungary – Western Europe route, on which road transport flows have been increasing over the past few years.
