iRAP has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with The Public Works Authority ‘Ashghal’ during the annual general conference organised by the Automobile International Federation (FIA) in Doha. The conference was hosted by the Qatar Motor and Motorcycle Federation beginning of December.

Signing the memorandum paves the way to adopt and implement road safety standards that are implemented by the iRAP to evaluate roads in Qatar. Those standards aim to raise the safety levels on the high-risk roads to a three star minimum as per the standards approved by the programme.

The authority’s representative, Mr. Yousef Al Emadi, Manager of Roads Operations and Maintenance Department in Ashghal signed the MoU with Mr. John Dawson, the Chairman of iRAP.

Mr. Al Emadi commented: “our collaboration with iRAP represents an important milestone towards providing safe roads for all those living in Qatar. It is also an important contribution that will support the National Road Safety Strategy, and we are proud to be part of these efforts that will play a role in reducing road accidents and saving lives.”

Saul Billingsley, FIA Director General commented: “we are delighted with the hosting of our annual general conference that will mark the beginning of a new partnership between Qatar and iRAP. This partnership is an example of the innovative approach that leads to measurable results, and it contributes to reducing road traffic fatalities and injuries in Qatar.
