Safety and human life are the first priority in tunnel safety. Damages of the tunnel construction and psychological influences need to be minimal. The tunnel safety is measured also with a degree, how people that are using the tunnel understand driving rules and how they behave inside the tunnel. The tunnel administrator and people that are using a tunnel need to know, how tunnel systems can be used in case of need. Based on the recommendation of the European parliament, about minimal safety requirements in tunnels located on the Trans-European Road Network, all tunnels require safety analysis and the risk evaluation. This should be used for planning of transport logistic routes for people and goods. The project is very interdisciplinary and combines technical contents with sociological ones (relation human-machine, human factor, psychology etc.). Methodologies for risk evaluation in road traffic are not studied enough in Slovenia. Risk analysis is important not only for safety evaluation, but has a wide spectre of use. The project work is oriented to risk analysis in the tunnel, which is defined as a combination of probabilities and consequences of an unusual event. The probability of unusual events that might occur in the tunnel and direct or potential consequences to these events is defined. The quantitative, qualitative or the combination of both risk analyses methods are used. Methodologies of risk analysis include the evaluation of each event probability and the evaluation of each relevant consequence. The developed methodologies enable the quantification of risk during the passage through the tunnel that is not based only on the equipment level and tunnel construction, but on the interaction of all factors that influence the safety or the risk inside the tunnel.
