The World Bank’s Global Road Safety Facility (GRSF) have released a video highlighting how GRSF and iRAP improved road safety through speed management in Accra, Ghana under the Bloomberg Initiative for Global Road Safety (BIGRS).
With the support of the Bloomberg Philanthropies Initiative for Global Road Safety (BIRGS) 2015-2019, pedestrian footbridges, new speed limits, crosswalks, and installation of traffic lights were completed in an effort to make roads safer in Ghana. The global impact of the GRSF-led interventions under the Bloomberg Initiative has been profound through road infrastructure management and building capacity in developing countries.
In Accra, the BIGRS initiative surveyed and assessed 260 km of roads; completed 74 km of construction based on iRAP survey recommendations; trained 164 professionals on road safety; and prevented over 5,243 potential deaths and serious injuries over 20 years.
