Help for authorities and private sector to access EU road safety funding and loans

  • April 19, 2019

The European Commission and the European Investment Bank have launched a new initiative to help public authorities and the private sector access funding and loans for road safety.

The “Safer Transport Platform – Road Safety Advisory” provides a single access point to the full range of existing EIB and EC advisory services and financial products. It guides potential applicants to the appropriate funding and financing instruments. The service is supported by the European Investment Advisory Hub (EIAH) and includes a web site with a contact form, a needs assessment exercise and awareness raising activities.

Examples of eligible projects include: road rehabilitation programmes; traffic calming measures; facilities for cyclists and pedestrians; IT solutions for safer traffic management and, on an exploratory basis, measures to improve the safety of vehicle fleets.
