Over 25 million EU funding to improve pedestrian safety
On October 8, CUPT concluded an agreement with the Minister of Infrastructure, the Secretariat of the National Road Safety Council, for EU funding for educational activities to improve pedestrian safety and reduce vehicle speeding.
Educational activities for the improvement of pedestrian safety and the reduction of excessive vehicle speed provided for in the project will cover the entire territory of the country. It is planned to spread the awareness of road traffic users by broadcasting campaigns on national TV and radio stations as well as information and promotion activities carried out, among others, by online.
– European funding for the road safety education program is an important signal. We are convinced that the actions taken by the Ministry of Infrastructure and the National Road Safety Council will lead to a reduction in the number of victims of accidents involving pedestrians and accidents caused by excessive speed – emphasized Andrzej Adamczyk, Minister of Infrastructure.
– The Infrastructure and Environment Program (POIiŚ) takes a comprehensive approach to road safety. With the support of European funds, kilometers are growing on the road map of Poland, which not only affects the comfort of driving, but also improves safety. Apart from investments in new roads, we also co-finance activities for road safety. Under OPI & E, we allocated EUR 150 million to road safety projects, says Deputy Minister of Funds and Regional Policy, Anna Gembicka.
