National Implementation Plan for ERTMS in Austria

Austrian Road Safety Programme 2011-2020

The Austrian Federal Government, in particular the Federal Ministry for Transport, Innovation and Technology (bmvit) as the main government body responsible for road safety, have set themselves the target of making Austria's roads among the safest in the European Union (EU).

Significant progress has already been achieved throught the first Austrian Road Safety Programme (2002-2010), but road safety figures for Austria are still only average for the EU as a whole, and even below average for the EU-15 countries. As a result, bmvit has worked in close cooperation with the members of the Austrian Road Safety Advisory Council's Roads Task Force to develop a new Road Safety Programme for the years 2011-2020.

Austrian Road Safety Programme 2002–2010 (Edition 2009)

The Ministry for Transport, Innovation and Technology presented the first Austrian Road Safety Programme in 2002 based on a scientific as well as interdisciplinary analysis by the Austrian Road Safety Board (KfV). The primary objective of this effort is the reduction of deaths and injuries to be achieved by effective implementation and financing of cost-effective safety measures, as well as securing political and social acceptance. This third edition of the programme represents the implementation status in 2009 and shows the challenges ahead till the end of 2010.

Aviation Road Map 2020

Austria’s outstanding geographic location gives it a significant role to play within aviation both in the European Union and internationally. This circumstance requires a Road Map for an Austrian Aviation Policy: the federal government’s strategic plan for the optimum development of Austrian aviation between now and 2020. This overall strategy, developed with stakeholders in the Austrian aviation industry, is now available and offers the aviation industry a comprehensive planning and decision-making structure for the coming years.

C-ITS Strategy Austria

Already today, the networking of intelligent transport systems contributes significantly to making transport safer, more efficient and sustainable. The possibilities offered by such cooperative systems, also known as C-ITS, are growing constantly. The C-ITS strategy for Austria summarises the key areas of action from the perspective of the bmvit and presents them in an international context. Thus, the basis for a deployment decision is provided for infrastructure operators as to how these new technologies can be deployed in the Austrian transport system by 2020. A further target group of this C-ITS strategy are the companies and organisations that will be involved in the deployment of C-ITS or will be affected by the deployment now or in the future.

Implementation plan: Electromobility in and from Austria

State-of-the-art technology developed and produced in the „innovation country“ Austria contributes vitally to the gradual implementation of electromobility in domestic, European, and international transport systems, it strengthens the business location, creates new jobs, and helps to reduce, by the growing use of renewable energies, as well as an increased energy efficiency, emissions generated in transport, and thus to protect climate and environment.

Road Safety in Austria - Annual Report 2016

The 2016 edition of the Annual Report on Road Safety in Austria reports on the implementation of the measures contained in the Road Safety Programme’s individual areas of intervention and outlines the resulting successes in reducing the number of accidents, injuries and fatalities on Austria’s roads.

Road Safety in Austria - Annual Report 2015

The 2015 edition of the Annual Report on Road Safety in Austria reports on the implementation of the measures contained in the Road Safety Programme’s individual areas of intervention and outlines the resulting successes in reducing the number of accidents, injuries and fatalities on Austria’s roads.

The Annual Report supports those involved in road safety work – researchers, practitioners and decision makers – in the development, planning and implementation of further road safety measures. This, in turn, establishes the basis for achieving the ambitious goals set in the Road Safety Programme for the period up to 2020 and allows any necessary adaptations to this programme to be made in a timely manner.

Road Safety in Austria - Annual Report 2014

This 2014 edition of the Annual Report on Road Safety in Austria reports on the implementation of the measures contained in the RSP’s individual areas of intervention and outlines the resulting successes in reducing the number of accidents, injuries and fatalities on Austria’s roads. All analyses should factor in the changes to accident data collection procedures that came into effect as of 2012. Since 1 January 2012, personal injury accidents on Austria’s roads have been recorded electronically by the police officers who respond to a road traffic accident via an “Accident Data Management” system and transmitted directly to Statistics Austria. While the actual accidents are recorded on the spot, the full details of an incident may subsequently be entered into the system in stages.

A major change is that all accidents are now assigned spatial coordinates using a geographic information system, a development which will significantly aid the identification of high accident concentration sections of the road network in future. The accident data collection catalogue has been updated in line with road safety and accident research requirements and considerably extended in comparison to the data previously collected via the accident statistics report.

Road Safety in Austria - Annual Report 2013

The 2013 annual report again focuses on the Road Safety Programme 2011-2020, reports on the implementation of measures in its individual areas of intervention and outlines the resulting successes in the reduction of accidents, injuries and fatalities on Austria’s roads.

The report thus provides support to researchers, practitioners and decision-makers in developing, planning and implementing further road safety measures. This, in turn, establishes the basis for achieving the ambitious goals set in the Road Safety Programme for the period to 2020 and allows any necessary adaptations to the programme to be made in a timely manner.

Road Safety in Austria - Annual Report 2012

The 2012 annual report focuses on the realization of the Austrian Road Safety Programme 2011–2020, the implementation of the measures planned in its individual areas of intervention and the resulting successes in reducing the number of accidents, injuries and fatalities on Austria’s roads. This new structure will also be maintained in the reports that will be published in the coming years.

The report thus provides support to researchers, practitioners and decision-makers in developing,
planning and implementing further road safety measures. This, in turn, establishes the basis for
achieving the ambitious goals set in the Road Safety Programme for the period to 2020 – and allows any necessary adaptations to the programme to be made in a timely manner.

The newly created Annual Report 2012 was published in October 2013.

Road Safety in Austria - Annual Report 2011

Road safety in Austria is the joint responsibility of different policy-makers. At the heart of the road safety work is the Road Safety Programme (RSP), initially enacted in 2002.

Since 2010, the Austrian Road Safety Fund has issued annual, theme-based calls for tenders. The themes are determined by bmvit in coordination with the goals of the RSP and current accident statistics developments. Two tender invitations were issued in 2011; the first dealt with the theme: “Safe · Electric · Mobile” and the second focused on the theme: “Distraction & Fatigue”.

The newly created Annual Report 2011 was published in September 2012.

Road Safety in Austria - Annual Report 2010

Road safety in Austria is the joint responsibility of different policy-makers. At the heart of the road safety work is the Road Safety Programme (RSP), initially enacted in 2002. The newly created RSP 2011–2020 was published in February 2011.

The Austrian Road Safety Fund (VSF) is set up within the bmvit with the goal of boosting road safety in Austria. The funds available for this are drawn from the road safety contribution paid when reserving a personalised number plate. These finances are used to fund projects to improve road safety. The bmvit specifies the topics in coordination with the goals of the RSP and the current trends in accident statistics.

Road Safety in Austria - Annual Report 2008/2009

Road Safety and halving the number of fatalities in road transport (see also White Paper “European Transport Policy”) is seen as a common task of all stakeholders on various levels not only in Austria but also in the European Union.

Central to this road safety work is the Road Safety Programme that has been set up in 2002 and lasts until 2010. From September 2009 on the programme for the next decade (2011-2020) is being developed.
