In Romania, the largest road infrastructure manager is National Company for Roads Infrastructure Administration – C.N.A.I.R S.A., which manages approximately 17,000 km of national roads and highways. Due to the high responsibilities of the largest road manager in Romania, is required to implement pilot road safety projects to observe the behavior of the technical solutions in time. During 2017 a pilot project to separate the traffic routes using cable road barrier was implemented on a road under management, namely DN 2, with a low level of road safety. The cable barrier is not a modern solution from the point of view of international experience, which is used frequently in countries such as Sweden and the United States but in Romania it was the first project of its kind. In this article, the pilot project implemented with all the technical solutions adopted as well as the results obtained after the completion of the implementation works will be presented. The presentation of the results obtained and the way of implementation is important due to the differences from the countries with experience in this field, respectively in Sweden is mainly used on 2 + 1 roads, and in the United States, especially on motorways, where the area between the meanings traffic is very high. Where the area between the traffic directions is very high.
