Road infrastructure - national guidelines

To support the authorities, road managers and road safety professionals in making Europe's road infrastructure and management safer, each EU Member State has adopted guidelines on meeting certain key legal requirements concerning:

  • road safety impact assessments
  • road safety audits
  • safety rankings
  • management of the road network in operation and
  • road safety inspections.

The objectives and basic requirements on the above are laid down in EU Directive 2008/96/EC on road safety infrastructure management.

The Nationals guidelines are available under the link below:
