Sustainable road transport connectivity across borders

23 May 2019

UNECE, IRU, PIARC and IRF joint side event at ITF 2019

In light of the importance of the road sector for cross-border and transit transport, UNECE, IRU, PIARC and IRF are jointly organizing a side event entitled “Sustainable road transport connectivity across borders” at ITF 2019. Senior representatives from the co-organizing organizations will open the 1.5 hours roundtable event involving high-level panellists from governments and the private and NGO sectors.

The panellists and the participants will have the opportunity to discuss and exchange experience and good practices on the three pillars of sustainable road transport: efficiency, safety and environmental sustainability. In particular, the panellists will share the challenges they face in their road transport networks and operations, using these challenges as an opportunity to highlight the successful infrastructure and facilitation solutions which they have implemented, are piloting or which are emerging. 

There will be a spotlight on various challenges relating to traffic rights, customs, contracts on the international carriage of goods by road, road safety, visa for professional drivers and crew, insurance, emission control, dimensions of vehicles, infrastructure standards, road signs and signals, vehicle regulations, the transport of dangerous goods and professional driver fatigue. Innovative infrastructure projects, pilot projects or initiatives from around the world will also be discussed.
