Milan is surrounded by a ring of ring roads that make up a total network of 184 km.

 In view of Expo 2015 Milano Serravalle-Milano Tangenziali contributes to "E015 – Digital Ecosystem" as an End User Application Provider through the creation of "Cash Parking Interchange of PMV" (Variable Message Signs). This application allows you to display on the dashboard of operating "Radio Information Centre” status of the parking ATM correspondence. It is expected that operators can use this data to expose the panels, visible to users, information relating to the availability of vacancies within the parks themselves.
