Towards more livable and safer cities: Examples for safe road infrastructure design – Now in Ukrainian language

The lack of road safety remains a major challenge in many urban areas, although high levels of road safety are a prerequisite for the attractiveness of cycling, walking and public transport. Today, GIZ publishes the publication “Towards more livable and safer cities: Examples for save safe road infrastructure design” in Ukrainian language.

Safety issues are often neglected because of perceived additional costs, inadequate norms and regulations and/or limited understanding by planners and decision-makers on new approaches to safety. In this context, our publication makes a small contribution to raise safety levels by showing selected examples of low-cost and easy to implement solutions. The publication is authored by two experts from Radverkehr-Konzept (RV-K), a planning office from Frankfurt in Germany.  The Ukrainian version has been supported by the project “Integrated Urban Development” (GIZ on behalf of BMZ).

The first 10 examples of the open to additions publication consist of the following topics:

•    Pedestrian curb extensions
•    Crosswalks (pedestrian crossings)
•    On-street parking
•    Pedestrian refugee islands
•    Raised sidewalks at driveway intersections
•    Road narrowing
•    Small roundabouts
•    Traffic diverter
•    Traffic calming
•    Plantation

The publication is now available for download in Ukrainian language here.
