Motorway Service Areas

TII is directly involved in the provision of on-line service areas on motorways and high quality dual carriageways.

It is increasingly accepted that a safe road network includes the provision of sufficient parking areas to allow drivers to stop and rest. In fact, this need has recently been given legal standing by European Union regulations under the Trans-European Transport Networks (TEN-T) policy.

On-line Service Areas

TII is directly involved in the provision of on-line service areas on motorways and high quality dual carriageways. This is distinct from off-line areas, i.e. locations at, or near, interchanges or further distant from the motorway/dual carriageway mainline.
