DSTU 8749: 2017 "Road Safety – Road Fencing and Traffic Management in Road Works Areas"
Draw your attention that as of January 1, 2019, the DSTU 8749: 2017 “ Road Traffic Safety. Road Fencing and Traffic Management in Road Works Areas” developed by DerzhdorNDI SE came into force.
This document introduces unified requirements regarding arrangement of road works areas on the roads as well as in the streets of settlements in order to inform all road traffic users (not only drivers but also pedestrians and cyclists) about the nature of restrictions and implemented modes of movement.
The requirements of the standard are harmonized with similar normative documents of EU countries, as well as with the recommendations of the World Road Association.
We expect that the implementation of DSTU 8749: 2017 requirements will contribute to improving the traffic safety on the roads and in the streets, reducing the risks of road accidents and the severity of their consequences.
