Best Practice for Cost-Effective Road Safety Infrastructure Investments

The EU target of reducing fatalities by 50% within a decade will only be achieved through the introduction of the most effective road safety measures, therefore, their economic appraisal is considered a very important tool in the hands of decision makers. The objective of this Synthesis is the identification of best practices in cost-effective infrastructure related road safety investments, based on the international experience attained through extensive and selected literature review and additionally on information/data collected through a questionnaire based survey launched by the Task O7 Group of the Conference of European Directors of Roads (CEDR). For the achievement of the above objectives an appropriate methodology was adopted: Initially, a review of selected reference documents dealing with cost-effectiveness studies of implemented road safety investments both in EU and worldwide takes place and the road safety strategies in the European countries are examined on the basis of a Questionnaire. At a second stage, several infrastructure related road safety investments identified through the literature review, but also through the analysis of the Questionnaire, are further investigated and a preliminary ranking is attempted.
