On Wednesday 30th and Thursday 31st March, the European Union Road Federation (ERF) and the European Noise Barrier Federation (ENBF) organised a Technical Tour on the topic of Road Restraint Systems and combined safety and noise barriers.
This tour consisted of a series of 6 short presentations delivered by some ERF and ENBF members on their stands, addressing more particularly the topic of Vehicle restraint systems and combined safety and noise barriers. Each presentation had a format of some 20 minutes and was introduced by the ERF DG, Christophe Nicodème.
The speakers were:
• Patrick Asimus (Solosar – Heintzmann Group)
• Jeanne Foret (Aximum)
• Ottavia Calamani (AISICO)
• Gianni Brero (UNICMI & ENBF)
• Joseph Marra (GDTech)
This initiative, which came directly from the ERF and ENBF Members, was a first attempt to highlight the role of Safety Barriers for the road safety, during an exhibition like Intertraffic, on different stands, and in a more interactive and direct format.
The Technical Tour proved to be a success and the ERF and ENBF Members are more than keen to repeating this type of intervention on different future occasions.
ERF DG, Christophe Nicodème, commented: The Technical Tour during Intertraffic is a sign of the commitment of the ERF towards Roadside Safety, as well as the involvement of its members for the promotion of the activities they share in the Federation.
