Item 241-01 HERMES – Harmonization of European Routine and research Measuring Equipment for Skid Resistance

HERMESHarmonization of European Routine and research Measuring Equipment for Skid Resistance was a FEHRL-funded pre-normative project that aimed to lay the foundations for consistent European standardization of skid resistance measurement on roads and runways. Underlying the work was the idea that the project should give the initial impetus to the implementation of a common scale of friction, the so-called EFI (European Friction Index), together with an associated harmonized calibration procedure, in all European countries.

Guide of good practice for cycle infrastructure in Wallonia

There are many reference books on cycle infrastructure. As a result, local and regional planners sometimes appear to be inundated with information and find it difficult to select the solution that best fits their specific situation.
Moreover, the legislation in force for cyclists is manifold, complicated and constantly amended. The Belgian highway code and road managers’ code gather all the legislation on road traffic as a whole, in which it is sometimes difficult to find the required “cycle” information quickly.

Pedestrian pavements in the pedestrian facilities manual of the Brussels Capital Region

As part of the 2010-2014 master plan for pedestrian traffic in the Brussels Capital Region, a manual has been prepared for the improvement of pedestrian facilities. The first part of this manual deals with pedestrian pavements, and BRRC was mandated to draft this part. It describes the fields of application and the specific features of laying and maintenance of the various paving materials used on pedestrian routes. The environmental aspects involved are discussed as well.
