For the fourth year, researchers at the Technical Institute of Gdansk, together with experts from the motoring club PZM and the Foundation for Civil Engineering have developed a risk map for national roads in Poland. The results show a significant decrease in the length of the network rated as high risk.
For the fourth year, researchers at the Technical Institute of Gdansk, together with experts from the motoring club PZM and the Foundation for Civil Engineering have developed a risk map for national roads in Poland. The results (in Polish) show a significant decrease in the length of the network rated as high risk.
This policy paper sets out the issues and suggests practical plans to define the tolerances and logical structure needed to read the road by machine, survey the extent to assess to which existing major road networks fall short and can be put right – and do so in a way which makes it easier and […]
More than 2,500kms of key Moldovan roads have been assessed, problems have been diagnosed and affordable remedies identified.

There are many ways to evaluate improvements to road infrastructure to check that they are reducing risk. It is possible to monitor safety at particular locations or over networks as a whole. Over a long period of time, it is possible to check if the number of crashes has reduced at locations where infrastructure has […]
This is a review of 11 studies that make comparisons between average crash rates, costs or severities and the Road Assessment Programme’s Star Rating or Road Protection Score (RPS). Work from Australia, Germany, Iceland, Italy, Netherlands, New Zealand, Spain, Sweden (two studies), the United Kingdom and the United States is included. Different methodologies and approaches […]
Road crashes bring misery for tens of thousands of families each year when a loved one is involved in a serious road crash. But road crashes also cost money – up to GBP30bn annually or 2.3% of GDP.
