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.
