This year marked the second round of testing motorway road work zones by the EuroTest partner clubs. This test was introduced for the first time last year within the scope of EuroTest. This time, 53 motorway road work zones in ten European countries were put to the test.
The methodology for this EuroTest is based on the recommendations of the European Union sponsored project ARROWS (Advanced Research on Road Work Zone Safety Standards in Europe). The recommendations resulting from ARROWS call for pan-European uniform road work zone safety standards that complement existing national guidelines rather than replace them. The tests were carried out by independent expert consultants contracted for their specific expertise in this field.
