Safety standards for road design and redesign, SAFESTAR. Final report.

By: Institute for Road Safety Research, SWOVContributor(s): SAFESTAR. Deliverable D 9.2Publication details: Leidschendam Institute for Road Safety Research, SWOV, 2002; SAFESTAR. Deliverable D 9.2, Description: 118 sSubject(s): Netherlands | Highway design | Safety | Alignment | Danger | Carriageway | Traffic sign | Lane | Safety fence | Tunnel | Junction | Mathematical model | | 82Online resources: Publikation/Publication Abstract: SAFESTAR was a research study focusing on traffic safety for what is known as the 'Trans-European Roadway Network' (TERN) that links the major European centres. The knowledgeneeded for being able to carry out an effective safety policy at the European level is insufficient in regard to various safety aspects of road infrastructure. SAFESTAR was established to fill in these gaps of knowledge, with special notice being given to the following seven topics: emergency lanes and shoulders along motorways, tunnels located on motorways, express roads, cross-sections of rural roads, curves in rural roads, major junctions on roads in urban areas, and assessing the safety of road infrastructure during the planning and design stages (the performing of safety audits). Within the scope of SAFESTAR, the investigation into these areas pays much attention to the differences between design standards as they now exist or are being developed in the individual countries within Europe. Of particular interest are the differences between the countries participating in SAFESTAR: the Netherlands, Denmark, Sweden, Finland, France, Portugal, Greece and the Czech Republic.
