Provision of risk maps of the road network to the Ministry of Infrastructure and Transport in Greece by the European co-financed project SLAIN  (Saving Lives Assessing and Improving TEN-T Road Network Safety) and the Road Safety Institute (RSI) "Panos Mylonas"
 
The SLAIN project (Saving Lives Assessing and Improving TEN-T Road Network Safety) is implemented by the Road Safety Institute (RSI) ‘Panos Mylonas’ in cooperation with the International Organization EuroRAP and partners coming from Italy, Spain, and Croatia. It is co-financed by the Connecting Europe Facility 2014-2015, under the consent of the Ministry of Infrastructure and Transportation in Greece.

One of the project results, aiming at Road Safety, is the creation of maps showing total risk at the Trans-European Road Network of Greece. This activity is compatible with Directive 2008/96/EC (which has been incorporated into Greek Law with Presidential Decree 104/2011 (Gg 237/A/7-11-2011)), as well as with its revision, where road safety assessment is included.
The creation of risk maps and the calculation of the relevant indicators were carried out in accordance with the international methodology EuroRAP and refer to the Trans-European Road Network for the 4-year period 2014-2017. The methodology is compatible and accepted by the updated European Directive and other international Organizations (WHO, World Bank). This way, a direct comparison between different countries can be attainable, as the same methodology is applied internationally, in over than 100 countries to date. At the end of the project (March 2021), the same map will be updated to include more recent data that will then be available. The risk is presented by different colors (black-red-orange-yellow-green, from the highest to the lowest level of risk).

RSI ‘Panos Mylonas’ President, Mrs. Vassiliki Danelli-Mylona, and her Associates, delivered today the risk maps to the Ministry of Infrastructure &Transport. The Secretary General of Transport, Mr. Nikos Stathopoulos, representing the Minister of Infrastructure & Transport, Mr. Kostas Karamanlis, thanking the President of the RSI ‘Panos Mylonas’ for the delivery of the maps, expressed his satisfaction "for the work carried out by the Department and partners of the Ministry, delivering outcomes that are particularly important for the strategic planning of the country's infrastructure and for the prioritization of road safety interventions."

According to Mrs. Danelli-Mylona, ​​“Our constructive cooperation with the EuroRAP Organization, of which RSI ‘Panos Mylonas’ is an active member and in-country leader since 2010, and with partners from other European countries, under the full support of the Ministry of Infrastructure and Transport in reference to the SLAIN project, is particularly important. Enhancing Road Safety in Greece is an issue of significant importance, contributing to informing the citizens and protecting human lives on the roads. We are very happy that today in our country we have a modern network of motorways that contributes to the safer transportation and the development of the country.”

When the relevant Authorities define the Primary road network of Greece, according to the requirement of the European Directive 2019/1936, the revised version of the maps will include the Primary network.

With the adoption of the risk maps by the Ministry, Greece is in line with the requirements of Directive 2008/96/EC in Greece (PD 104/2011) as well as of the revision 2019/1936.
