08 Jun Mission Critical: an Event Review on the Road Network Safety Management Workshop held in Málaga (Spain) (Thinking Highways event review – Vol. 12 No. 1, Jul 2017)

Road safety professionals from nine different countries gathered in Málaga, Spain, on 30 and 31 March 2017 to attend a Road Network Safety Management Workshop. The event was organised by the International Road Federation (IRF) – a global non-for profit organisation which aims at promoting the benefits of a sustainable road transport infrastructure at all levels of society – and was supported by the Smart Transportation Alliance (STA) – a collaborative platform for transportation infrastructure innovation across modes and the Smart City.

A panel of 11 internationally renowned experts shared their views and best practices to better implement road safety measures. With the support of the Málaga City Council and the Professional Association of Civil Engineers of Málaga, this course was aimed at delivering practical pathways to improved road safety performance through policies and measures that target recurrent road safety management and engineering weaknesses found in countries experiencing high growths in vehicle and motorcycle ownership.

In this article, STA Programmes Manager Claudio Caferri and STA Programmes Coordinator Antonio Montalvo review the Road Network Safety Management Workshop organised by the International Road Federation held in Malaga last 30-31 March 2017 and bring together excerpts of interviews made to the road safety experts and event’s attendees.
