Project summary

The project envisages the assessment of the Safety Performance Management of the TEN-T Core road network in four European countries: Croatia, Italy, Greece and Spain.

It aims at demonstrating a methodology of network-wide assessment and proposes section-specific, economically-viable crash countermeasures designed to raise infrastructure quality to achieve significant reductions in severe injuries and deaths. The project will produce almost 8,000 km of mapping of death and serious injury rates, administer more than 4,000 carriageway kilometres of Star Rating maps, bring a cogent technical justification for using network-wide road assessment, and produce more than 100 examples or case studies showing how mapping of death and serious injury rates from crash data can be used to target selective Star Rating assessments.
