The iRAP methodology is on show at Brazil’s National Department of Transport Infrastructure (DNIT) Fourth Planning Week this week in accordance with its nation-wide implementation, certified with the inov@BR seal.

A BrazilRAP survey of 62,000km of federal roads is complete, and coding and analysis processes are starting to produce Star Ratings and Safer Roads Investments Plans for the country.

DNIT’s Fourth Planning Week is occurring from 28-31 March and will feature more than 24 technical sessions on topics such as Infrastructure Planning and Programs; Expropriation and Resettlement Actions; Environment; Innovations, Technologies and IT Solutions applied to transport; Studies, Projects and Structuring; Road Safety; Models and Simulation for planning purposes; Infrastructure Maintenance; Building Information Modelling (BIM); and Information Intelligence in the transport sector.

The event will feature presentations by DNIT employees and staff of the Municipality; equipment, products and services suppliers; and infrastructure experts in road, rail and waterway modes. The general public is invited to attend and participate in discussions and debate.

An iRAP session on Tuesday 29 March will commence at 4pm local time and include the following presentations:

Implementation of the iRAP Methodology by DNIT was certified with the inov@BR seal from the Brazilian Ministry of Infrastructure in February. Inov@BR consists of the Policy for the Modernization of the Federal Highway Transport Infrastructure, which aims to ensure the safety and logistical efficiency of federal highways.

The Government aims to reduce the number and severity of road crashes and achieve international standards of road safety and innovation on federal highways.

iRAP Codification is part of the inov@BR Programme associated with the Road Safety pillar.

DNIT leads BrazilRAP, the national road assessment programme for Brazil and was recently awarded an iRAP 5-Star Performer Award for its exceptional leadership of the programme and outstanding efforts to build local capacity and apply the iRAP methodology extensively on Brazil´s federal roads.
