After six years of testing tunnels in Europe, EuroTest Tunnel inspections have given way to EuroTAP (European Tunnel Assessment Programme). EuroTAP ran from 2005 to 2007 with the support of the European Commission. EuroTAP 2008 is supported by the FIA Foundation.
Interested EuroTest partners formed the EuroTAP consortium under the coordination of the FIA Brussels office in order to focus only on further improving tunnel safety. EuroTAP 2005-2007 tested 150 of the most important European tunnels.
The results of the tunnels tested are published every year in media all across Europe. Tunnels users are able to access via the internet safety relevant information about individual tunnels in seven different languages. A European Tunnel Audit Report was produced covering nine years of tunnel tests highlighting what has been achieved and what still needs to be done. Information leaflets were targeted at motorists giving information on how to behave correctly in tunnels.
