Trans-European Road Network, TEN-T (Roads): 2019 Performance Report

The 2019 TEN-T (Roads) Performance Report is the sixth biennial report published by Conference of European Directors of Roads (CEDR) on the performance of the TEN-T road network within CEDR participating countries. CEDR's intention in producing these reports is to establish a stable set of data with which to monitor trends and identify changes in the performance of the TEN-T road network. Data collected for this report are based on the CEDR performance reporting framework. This framework comprises a common Location Referencing Model for the TEN-T road network and a set of common definitions for base data that are used to calculate performance indicators. The TEN-T Location Referencing Model is a link-node model with nodes defined at the intersection of TEN-T links. With 21 national road authorities (NRAs) providing data on a voluntary basis, the 2019 report covers approximately 71,000km of TEN-T roads of which 42% are part of the Core Network and 61% are motorways. Approximately 24,500 km of the roads form part of Core Network Corridors. The network covered by the report represents some of Europe’s most heavily used and significant roads with more than 26% carrying in excess of 80,000 vehicles per day and more than 40% with a traffic density of more than 6,000 vehicles per day per lane. Heavy Goods Vehicles (HGVs) make up a significant proportion of this traffic with more than 20% of the total traffic comprising HGVs on 22% of the network. The overall traffic demand has increased by on average 1% each year since 2011 and, although the number of HGVs on the network has remained steady or slightly decreased since 2011, national road administrations have planned capacity improvements on 31% of network sections. Despite this level of demand, the rate of fatal accidents remains relatively low with an annual average across the network of 3.6 fatal accidents per Billion Vehicle KMs travelled and these figures appear to have remained steady since 2015.
