CEDR’s activities are organised in five Focus Areas.
Focus Area 1 Digitalisation and Innovation: FA1 encompasses activities related to connected and automated driving, future digitalisation of transport and innovation. The FA’s main goal is to help NRAs to keep ahead of the curve, anticipate future innovative trends and prepare them to face new digital challenges.
Focus Area 2 Environment and Resilience: FA2 includes a wide range of activities focusing on the topics of climate change, water and soils’ quality, biodiversity, noise and sustainability, among others. The FA’s objective is to improve the sustainability of roads and reduce their environmental impact and carbon footprint.
Focus Area 3 Safety, Operations, Mobility and Performance: FA3 could be described as the day to day business of NRAs aimed at keeping traffic flows safe and efficient. It therefore focuses on the vital issues of road safety, traffic management and performance of road networks. The FA’s goal is to reinforce NRA’s role as key providers of efficient and seamless mobility from an end user perspective within the transport system.
Focus Area 4 Resources and Asset Management: FA4 tackles the challenge of developing and maintaining NRAs’ infrastructures in a (cost)efficient way. The FA’s activities are therefore related to procurement and finances as well as network governance, among others. The main objective is to facilitate and optimise the efficient use of resources, making the best use of existing infrastructures.
Focus Area 5 Regulation and Harmonisation: FA5 addresses the legal framework within which all NRAs’ operations must be carried out. It therefore focuses on the crucial topic of harmonisation and standards as well as all relevant EU legislation pieces. The goal of FA5 is to help NRAs to keep ahead of the curve, anticipate future regulatory trends and prepare them to face new legislative frameworks.
