How the idea for the SABRINA project was born
In 2014, the results of a SENSoR project revealed that approximately 80% of roads in 14 countries of Southeastern Europe are very unsafe for cyclists. According to European Road Assessment Programme protocol (EuroRAP), the roads were granted just one or two out of maximum five stars for safety. With cycling gaining in its popularity, it is becoming evident that cycling infrastructure in the Danube region needs attention.
Cycling infrastructure is largely in an early stage of development, especially outside of the major urban areas. Additional, better, and safer cycling infrastructure will not only attract more people to active mobility and traveling but most importantly prevent serious injuries and fatalities amongst cyclists.
The mission of the SABRINA partnership
The SABRINA partnership tackles cycling infrastructure safety issues on existing, planned, and missing corridors crossing nine Danube area countries. We are inspecting the bicycle routes for safety identifying the risks and potentials for cyclists.
We will provide the decision-makers with resources and tools for safe and sustainable solutions for improved cycling infrastructure in the region. When cycling infrastructure is planned, designed, built, and maintained considering safety of cyclists, pedalling becomes also more enjoyable and preferred way of moving – having positive impact on cyclists’ health, environment, and sustainable development.
To reach our goals, the SABRINA partnership will:
