Aligned to the UN Second Decade of Action for Road Safety goal of halving road traffic deaths and injuries by 2030, the Zambian Road Transport and Safety Agency (RTSA) is commissioning a pilot safety assessment of the country’s strategically important roads using the iRAP methodology.

In Zambia, traffic crashes have become one of the most common causes of death and injury. World Health Organisation data recorded 3,586 fatalities in 2015.

Expressions of Interest are invited from qualified and eligible firms from within and outside Zambia by Friday 16 July at 10:30 hours local time.

According to iRAP’s Vaccines for Roads Big Data Tool, achieving greater than 75% of travel on 3-star or better roads for all road users in Zambia by 2030 stands to save 1,214 lives every year with an economic benefit of USD$5.4 billion – $7 for every $1 spent.
