Cycling infrastructure in the Danube region is largely in an early stage of development, especially outside of the major urban areas. Given the benefits that cycling has on the environment, tourism, health, transport multimodality, etc. this fact is both a development opportunity and a substantial safety risk if not properly addressed.
In these COVID-19 times, people across the globe look to bicycling as socially distant transportation and recreation option. The emerging role of bicycles serves as a critical reminder of the need to improve infrastructure, making it safer, forgiving, sustainable, and comfortable. Cycling is a practical solution for sustainable transport and develop- ment for which national, regional, and local authorities are showing more willingness to address.
SABRINA project focuses on the road infra- structure safety for cyclists as one of the most vulnerable road users. It tackles cycling infrastructure safety issues on existing, planned, and missing cycling corridors crossing nine countries in the Danube region. Our goal is to improve conditions for road bicycle infrastructure safety in the region by raising capacities of all relevant national, regional, and local stakeholders to build and improve bicycle infrastructure in a safe and sustainable way.
