CEDR Technical Group Road Safety (TGRS) is very proud to have delivered one of the most significant documents in recent years on the subject of forgiving roadsides. CEDR has identified the design of forgiving roads as one of the top priorities within its Strategic Plan 2009–2013 and this reflects the work done by the CEDR-ERANET 'IRDES' project.
The roadside features for which the Forgiving Roadsides Design Guide has been developed are barrier terminals, shoulder rumble strips, forgiving support structures for road equipment, and shoulder width. Each feature is analysed in a separate section of the guide.
