EU Directives and Possibility of Implementation of Modern Systems of Incident Situations Management in Road Tunnels

EU direktive i mogucnosti implementacije suvremenih sustava upravljivosti incidentnim situacijama u cestovnim tunelima

Road traffic has an important role and it is one of the main factors in modern life. Having in mind the fact that tunnels enable sustained flow of traffic on international as well as on national road networks, tunnels are observed as the most important infrastructure objects on the road network, both regarding their function and road traffic safety as a part of general safety of each country. Increase of the number of traffic accidents with tragic consequences in tunnels resulted in the creation of the number of scientific and research projects made by competent institutions of the European Union (EU). In order to raise road traffic safety to a higher level, the society must constantly make significant efforts in the improvement of traffic infrastructure, and all subjects and participants in traffic must systematically develop the traffic culture. Modern technology and information technology solutions enable the flow of great number of information and contents to the system users, in order to improve information on the actual state of a certain part of the transport network. Several catastrophic fires in tunnels in the last several years warn us in a dramatic manner that tunnels represent extremely risky places in road transport.
