ADVANCED RESEARCH ON ROAD WORKZONE SAFETY STANDARDS IN EUROPE

Objective

The ARROWS project aims to reach its key objectives of:
1) Developing a unified range of applicable road workzone safety measures and principles that should govern the planning, design, implementation and operation of road workzones so as to mitigate their adverse safety effects on workers and road users, and
2) producing a practical handbook aiming in the practical guidance to network managers at all levels.


ARROWS will achieve this through a series of four complementary work packages designed to:
- Analyse road workzone typologies, present the whole range of applicable workzone safety measures (current and innovative), and review existing national and international "standards and practices" on the topic.
- Explore the effectiveness of road workzone safety measures in terms of their capability in achieving desired driver behaviour, towards a safer driving and working environment.
- Review the experimental methods for the evaluation of safety measures.
- Develop improved sets of road workzone safety measures.
- Recommend a European framework for road workzone safety standards.
- Produce a practical handbook for road workzone safety aiming to provide practical guidance to network managers at all levels.
