The professional seminar “CESTE ” ( ROADS ) is a place summarising the results achieved in the field of road development, maintenance and management, as well as road safety, emphasizing the novelties from the field of planning, designing and innovations in the construction technology domestically and in the world. The road traffic is considered one of the more important development drivers in any country, thus also here in Croatia, having an impact on the economic, tourist but also social development. It is a fact that the roads and their maintenance in the everyday lives of the people are necessary just like the food and medicines, and, therefore, we can count on the survival of the roadmen also during the times of severe economic crises. From the counselling and joint meetings so far it is obvious that the profession examines the road traffic issues seriously, responsibly and in detail, and invests efforts to remove the shortcomings in our roads and traffic infrastructure. Our professional meetings are not only a part of the past, they are also a part of today’s, everyday life, which is best proven by our joint conclusions and messages for the future in the actual environment in which safety and better quality road traffic takes place during all the seasons for our and foreign users of the existing Croatian traffic network. The importance of our meetings is that they analyse and consider the problems with regard to the road traffic safety in practice, where domestic and foreign professionals participate with many years of experience in the traffic safety. The future of a higher road traffic safety from its vision to the realisation is our basic task and, therefore, the area is ever more attractive and will provide good opportunities to implement the plan also in the near future. Apart from discussing these current topics, one of the basic programme goals of our professional meeting on roads is to gather the domestic and foreign professionals, who with their discussions will exchange the acquired knowledge and experience and thus ensure a quality basis for the creation of a high-quality management strategy and modern development of roads of all categories. With the accession of the Republic of Croatia to the EU, a new chapter in the traffic development has been opened requiring the harmonisation and implementation of the legal regulations with the directives of the European Parliament and the importance of the Croatian engineers in traffic and civil engineering, as well as the application of the ITS system and road telematics.
