A bus lane has been brought into service between Saint-Egrève and Grenoble to improve the performance of the network. This dedicated lane continues to act as an emergency lane in normal periods, but when traffic is heavy it is used by authorised coaches while remaining accessible to vehicles in distress.

Financement - Ressources

The Conseil Général de l'Isère has created this dedicated lane and provided funding of 6.2 million euros. It will act as an emergency lane in normal periods, and when traffic is heavy electronic messages will indicate that it is open to coaches.

Résultats

The Direction Intedépartementale des Routes Centre-Est (DIR EC) is the operator of this motorway and controls all its equipment (cameras and traffic signals) from the Grenoble control station. The Isère Conseil Général has also organised training for 300 coach drivers.
