RADAR Risk Assessment on Danube Area Roads

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.   

FACTS

 Crashes across the Danube region cost more than 2% of Regional GDP.

  In 14 countries in South-East Europe 60-70% of inter-urban roads are categorized as high or very high risk.

RADAR (Risk Assessment on Danube Area Roads) implements learning and transnational cooperation activities at different levels to help the responsible road safety organizations in the Danube area identify risk on their road networks and helps them reduce risk systematically, by improving infrastructure and road layout. RADAR addresses all road-users but pays particular attention to vulnerable road users, as it confronts: 

  • safety on major roads near school,
  • the issue of safety in a holistic way,
  • speed as a major risk on roads.

The project includes work in 12 Danube countries, has 10 PPs, joined by 11 ASPs (mainly ministries or road authorities) in most countries as well as the EUSDR PA1B and SEETO.

  • Through Training Courses

Defining road safety solutions that are cost effective will lead to the highest reduction of crashes and casualties.

  • Through Road Safety Expert Group

The establishment of a transnational Road Safety Expert Group will increase the knowledge across the region and draw on input from beyond its borders. 

  • Through Pilot Action

Pilot Actions will show authorities steps to be taken to prioritize road sections.
