Outputs from the BALTRIS project

Together we can make Europe an attractive place to invest, work and live in. The key to overall improvement is a continued transnational cooperation focusing both human life and the environment.

Safe transportation is an important issue for all citizens. Road infrastructure safety is one of the key pillars for road safety. BALTRIS combines expertise of road authorities and academic institutions to bring out ready-to-apply road infrastructure management tools, for the Baltic Sea Region and for all European countries. Enhancing road safety saves life, health and money.

The BALTRIS project has resulted in four procedure manuals:

  • Road safety impact assessment
  • Road safety audits
  • Road network safety management
  • Road safety inspections.

These tools have during the latter part of the BALTRIS project been taught through week-long trainings. The project has also left scientific imprints through a couple of articles.

BALTRIS Training

Road infrastructure safety management is highly benefitted by continuously performed and updated trainings in road safety. Ongoing improvements have effects on personal as well as local, regional and national level. When trainings are held with a transnational perspective we can find a joint aspect of Vision Zero and unite to reach its goal. Together we can make a crucial difference in the road infrastructure.
