Launch of EU pilot projects to assess safety of infrastructure

EU Member States have this week started work on pilot projects to assess the safety of their roads. These pilot projects are being developed to test methodologies for the network-wide road assessments required under the Road Infrastructure Safety Management Directive (RISM). The Network-wide road assessments allow national authorities to identify those sections of road where the opportunities to improve safety are the greatest and where targeted investment should deliver the biggest improvements.

A detailed analysis will be shared among Member States authorities at a workshop planned for October 2022. All EU Member States are required to carry out their network-wide road assessments by 2024 at the latest and then at least every 5 years.
