The project RADAR implemented learning and transnational cooperation activities to help the relevant organisations in the Danube area to identify risk on their road networks and help them reduce risk systematically by improving road infrastructure and roads’ layout.
The project tackled the differences in road infrastructure safety levels between western and eastern EU countries. It contributed to improving the knowledge and capacities of all involved stakeholders in the Danube region to successfully address road infrastructure safety. The RADAR project facilitated transnational knowledge and best practice sharing processes and made ready-to-use tools for improvements available in national languages to governments in participating countries.
With National Action Plans RADAR partnership defined clear steps for implementation and pilot actions and assisted local authorities to prioritise high risk road sections. The development of implementation-ready Road Layout Concept Plans identified specific needs at locations prior to crash countermeasure implementation.
The establishment of a transnational Road Safety Expert Group bolstered knowledge across the region and draw on input from beyond its borders towards a first region-wide Danube Infrastructure Road Safety Improvement Strategy.
RADAR was instrumental in building regional capacity and strategic action plans for evidence-based smart road infrastructure investment in Eastern Europe.
RADAR aimed to contribute to closing the gap between policy and practice in road safety with collaboration between government and highway authorities for casualty reduction and the operational engineering activities required to deliver them. In that sense, during the RADAR’s 3.5-year period, the project addressed national public authority, the general public, interest groups and non-governmental organizations, international organizations, professionals and especially road safety engineers.
