Various Projects

Granted a request made by Aigio Road Traffic Police, R.S.I. installed two danger signals in the 94th km. of Korinthos-Patras Old National Road, in which many fatal accidents have happened. The road signals were similar to those that had already been installed on the New National Road.


According to a study conducted by the I.O.AS and submitted for approval to Ministry for the Environment, Physical Planning and Public Works, a traffic light was installed outside the Kastella Primary School in Evoia. The traffic light was installed with R.S.I. funds at the central road outside the school, daily crossed by many students and their parents.


 The installation of a new traffic light in a junction at Poseidonos highway will have be completed until the end of 2009, by the Ministry for the Environment, Physical Planning and Public Works, after an R.S.I. proposal that had taken in account the residents’ warnings about the risks of the junction.

R.S.I. organized a Volunteers Network across Greece with the active participation of people throughout the country in the detection of dangerous spots of the road network. Volunteers are organized and coordinated by region and municipality utilizing and implementing the “Pin Project” Action. designed a constant backing micro-site implementing the “Pin Project” and put it at R.S.I. disposal. Thanks to this project R.S.I. Panos Mylonas uses the modern technology applications in order to find the better solutions for the daily traffic problems.
 “Panos Mylonas” R.S.I. embraced this action from its very first steps and having the adequate experience, helped in the formation of data to be completed by the Project’s participants.
