ECOROADS projects aims at the establishment of a common enhanced approach to road infrastructure and tunnel safety management by using the concepts and criteria of the Directive 2008/96/CE on road infrastructure safety management and the results of the two related European Commission’s (EC) studies on Directive 2008/96/EC, covering the open road safety management and Directive 2004/54/EC, covering the tunnels.
Such an objective will be achieved through the following specific activities:
- Workshops with the stakeholders (European tunnel and road managers);
- Exchange of best practices and experiences between European tunnel experts and road safety professionals
- Pilot joint safety operations in (at least) five European road sections in transition (which feature both open roads and tunnels)
- Recommendations and guidelines for the application of the RSA and RSI concepts within the tunnel safety procedures and operations
