ROSEE will support governments at the national and regional level in the selected South-East European regions to improve coordination in promoting, planning and operating primary and secondary road networks with an emphasis on improving traffic safety performance and network accessibility. When networks are managed well, road crashes are infrequent and the severity of road crash injuries can be reduced.
The project aims to improve road safety performances on primary and secondary networks in South East Europe, in the involved 6 countries: Italy, Romania, Hungary, Greece, Slovenia, Bulgaria.
1) On primary networks the project will work with relevant national stakeholders to develop or strengthen mechanisms for including road safety as a standard in the planning and operation of the network and to define road safety objectives for the primary network in each country. To do this and to ensure synergies with other relevant disciplines, the project will establish a forum for regular dialogue and coordination that includes the relevant agencies such as roads, transport and interior.
2) On secondary networks, the project will work with relevant national, regional and municipal stakeholders to design and test a model approach for strengthening road safety in the planning and operation of key segments of the secondary networks. This will include identifying a high-risk segment of the secondary network, agreeing with relevant decision-makers the key road safety objectives for the road segment and developing a multicomponent strategy that outlines an action plan. This approach will be replicable and inform the content of future investment proposals.
- Defining road safety objectives for the primary network in each country.
- Designing and testing a model approach for strengthening road safety in the planning and operation of key segments of the secondary networks.
ROSEE, ROad safety in South East European regions, intends to give support, through a valuable transnational approach, to national and regional governments in South East European countries to improve the coordination in promoting, planning and operation of primary and secondary road networks, in order to increase traffic safety performance and network accessibility. The aim of the ROSEE project is to make South East European road networks safer and comparable with European average safety levels.
