"The Road Administration led the project in an effort to improve the level of traffic safety. The current road technical audit is probably the best in Europe," Egidijus Skrodenis, deputy director of the Lithuanian Road Administration, told BNS.
The project involved improving technical audit of roads, which helps reduce risks on newly-built roads and identify what solutions are needed in certain segments, he said.
Lithuania has contributed 449,000 euros to the project, of which 85 percent is EU money.
Other partners in the project are the Estonian and Swedish road administrations, Vilnius Gediminas Technical University, Tallinn University of Technology, Lund University, and Riga Technical University.
