Abstract

Key to understanding the needs and building road infrastructure management tools to prevent and mitigate run-off-road accidents is to identify hazards and their sources which are a result of wrong design, construction, installation and maintenance of road restraint systems [1]. Building such tools requires advanced studies with field tests, simulations and models [30]. Delivered under the Road Innovation programme, two research projects (ROSE and LifeROSE) are designed to help with that. The main aim of the projects is to develop a method to help with an optimal choice of road restraint systems.
