Large parts of the Danube road network rate poorly for safety, particularly for vulnerable road-users, and death rates in many countries are higher than the EU average. Many countries lack professional capacity and approaches to the problem vary.
The project RADAR will implement learning and transnational cooperation activities to help the relevant organisations in the Danube area to identify risk on their road networks and help them reduce risk systematically by improving road infrastructure and roads’ layout.
Read project objectives from here.
The project RADAR is tackling the differences in road infrastructure safety levels between western and eastern EU countries. It will contribute to improving knowledge and capacities of all involved stakeholder in the Danube region to successfully address the road infrastructure safety. RADAR project will facilitate transnational knowledge and best practice sharing processes and make ready-to-use tools for improvements available in all national languages to governments in participating countries.
IT IS TIME TO ACT!
With National Action Plans RADAR partnership will define clear steps for implementation and pilot actions will assist local authorities to prioritise high risk road sections. The development of implementation-ready Road Layout Concept Plans will identify specific needs at locations prior to crash countermeasure implementation.
The establishment of a transnational Road Safety Expert Group will bolster knowledge across the region and draw on input from beyond its borders towards a first region-wide Danube Infrastructure Road Safety Improvement Strategy.
RADAR is becoming instrumental in building regional capacity and strategic action plans for evidence-based smart road infrastructure investment in Eastern Europe.
