Project SABRINA - Safer Bicycle Routes in Danube Area
The EuroRAP’s subsidiary based in Slovenia, European Institute of Road Assessment (EIRA), has been awarded €2.08 million for the project SABRINA – Safer Bicycle Routes in Danube Area. The project runs until the end of 2022 in the framework of Danube Transnational Programme (Interreg) and is co-funded by the European Union Funds (ERDF, ENI).
Project Partners and Stakeholders
The SABRINA project has 11 project partners and 4 associated strategic partners from 9 Danube area countries which represent a blend of different organizations and institutions: NGOs whose activities are aimed at road safety, cycling or green transport; local and national authorities as decision-makers ready to practically implement solutions of SABRINA; and research institutions with experience in transnational projects regarding road safety and sustainable urban mobility provisions including cycling. The benefit for project partners’ territories are awareness-raising about cycling infrastructure safety, and the provision of innovative solutions in form of a strategic decision-making toolkit. The latter aims at supporting the decision-making process at the local, regional, or national level in building new and improving existing cycling routes.
The aim of the project
The SABRINA project focuses on road infrastructure safety for cyclists as one of the most vulnerable road users. It tackles cycling infrastructure safety issues on existing, planned, and missing cycling corridors crossing nine countries in the Danube region. Approx. 5000 km of bicycle routes will be inspected using specially equipped vehicles, software, and trained analysts. Our goal is to improve conditions for road bicycle infrastructure safety in the region by raising the capacities of all relevant national, regional, and local stakeholders to build and improve bicycle infrastructure in a safe and sustainable way.
All project activities will bring us to Strategic Decision-Making Tool. The platform aims to provide national, regional, and local stakeholders with a toolkit that includes procedures, know-how, and recommendations for the development and improvement of cycle routes with a focus on safe bicycle travel. The tool will show practical solutions based on available funds to propose investment plans that consider, among others, infrastructure upgrade costs, safety, health, and environmental benefits.
