Description: Tyrosafe FP7 EC project

A one-day workshop will be held relating to the measurement of skid resistance and its future in Europe on 17 September 2009 at the Institution of Highways and Transportation in the City of London. At the workshop, the TYROSAFE team will present their findings regarding the current situation, together with proposals for ways forward towards harmonisation of skid resistance measurement methods and possible future developments in measuring techniques.

The TYROSAFE project is a Coordination Action funded by the European Community's Seventh Framework Programme (FP7/2007-2013). As part of its work, a one-day workshopwill be held relating to the measurement of skid resistance and its future in Europe.

The participants to the workshop will be invited experts and stakeholders interested in the measurement of skid resistance across the road sector from across Europe, including highway authorities, road operators, measurement survey companies and measurement device manufacturers. The workshop provides delegates an opportunity to contribute to the discussion from their perspectives and experience.

The workshop will provide information to help the TYROSAFE team as it prepares recommendations for implementing roadmaps towards harmonisation of skid resistance measurement in the longer-term context of harmonised policies and optimised road surfaces.

The workshop will take place on Thursday 17th September 2009 at the Institution of Highways and Transportation in the City of London.
