Workshop on How to design safe roads

17 March 2023

The Road Safety Performance Review (RSPR) was designed to help the beneficiary country to strengthen the road safety system and effectively address and improve national road safety records. The most critical road safety aspects and priority needs in the beneficiary country will be identified by preparing the RSPR. The RSPR will identify gaps in technical, financial and statistical capacities and any other economic or social problems preventing country from establishing or upgrading road safety management system. The RSPR will map gaps in national institutional, legal and regulatory frameworks - all in line with the ITC Recommendations on Enhancement of National Road Safety System. Based on the RSPR findings, a national capacity-building workshop/s will take place to provide further training on the priority areas identified through the RSPR. Once agreed, the RSPR will be translated into the national language and published for better dissemination of the Project results.
The How to design safe roads workshop is a first national capacity-development workshop based on the findings of the RSPR. The Workshop will provide further training on the most pressing road safety issues related to safe roads/infrastructure and safety of work zones.
During the Workshop, the following topics will be covered:
• International legal and strategic framework for road safety (including Conventions, Agreements, Decade of Action for Road Safety 2021-2030, EU RISM Directive)
• National legal framework and road safety situation
• RSPR Methodology and progress in RSPR Uzbekistan preparation
• Road infrastructure safety
• Work zone safety
The objective is to strengthen capacities of national road safety stakeholders on the Safe System Approach and how to design safe roads, to share best practices of the European and neighbouring countries in safe roads design and point out on some deficiencies in existing practice which should be eliminated. Based on discussion during the workshop and in collaboration with the beneficiary country, RSPR safe roads chapter will be updated.
Workshop will be held on English with Russian interpretation.
