Road safety - works or mixed (Cohesion Countries)
Description of call
"Road safety - works or mixed (Cohesion Countries)"

Objective:

The general objective is to modernise transport infrastructure on the Core and Comprehensive Networks of the TEN-T.

Scope:

In accordance with Article 9(2)(b)(vii) of the CEF Regulation, the following Actions will be supported:

  • Works, with the possibility to include studies, for the upgrading of existing road sections of the core and comprehensive network road infrastructure with poor safety rating or high accident occurrence, with a view to increasing their safety. Such actions may include:
    • systemic improvements to the in-built safety of roads;
    • implementation of measures identified during the network-wide road safety assessment in accordance with Directive (EU) 2019/1936;
    • upgrades of most critical and accident-prone sections (“hot spots”) as identified in the network-wide road safety assessment in accordance with Directive (EU) 2019/1936;
    • deploying digital information systems for the safe road and road tunnel use and/or enforcement purposes.

Support will only be given to actions providing for safety upgrades of existing road infrastructure, not to the construction of new road infrastructure. Support will be given to the deployment of digital infrastructure, if it has the purpose of improving of road safety and tunnel safety or if it supports authorities in enforcing road safety. Systemic improvements to the in-built safety of roads will be supported, if the intervention is based on findings of the targeted road safety inspections or of the network-wide road safety assessments in accordance with Annex IIa or III of Directive (EU) 2019/1936 (revised).

The foreseen duration of the action should be 4-5 years maximum.
