A road safety campaign brought together experts from Bulgaria and Romania

The financing of the project is provided by the Interreg V-A Program Romania – Bulgaria 2014-2020 through the European Regional Development Fund, the Romanian and Bulgarian Governments.

On January 31, a round table on road safety was held in Cherven Bryag. The event launched the campaign to ensure high awareness of the population of the municipality of Cherven Bryag and the municipality of Alexandria.

The topic of road safety of all road users was discussed at the event, with a focus on children and the elderly, who are the most vulnerable groups in this regard. Representatives of various stakeholders spoke about the good practices in the field and outlined the need to take additional preventive measures both in practice and in law.

Several schools and kindergartens in the city, as well as owners and instructors in driving schools took an active part in the discussion. Everyone agreed that there should be constant proactive work and position on the topic, because only in this way can human life be preserved. It is no coincidence that the clear message was chosen as the motto of the whole campaign – BE CAREFUL ON THE ROAD! EVERY HUMAN LIFE IS VALUABLE!

The campaign is part of the ROBG-306 Project Better Connectivity of Alexandria and Cherven Bryag to the TEN-T Network. The project is aimed at important common challenges related to the poorly developed transport infrastructure in the cross-border region and its accessibility and will be implemented from 20.03.2019 to 19.03.2022.

The main goal is to improve regional mobility by modernizing the road infrastructure in the municipalities of Alexandria and Cherven Bryag, as well as to create joint mechanisms to facilitate the connection of tertiary nodes to the TEN-T infrastructure.
