iRAP and La Société Nationale des Autoroutes du Maroc (ADM) have signed a contract for the assessment of 200kms of roads in Morocco, and the training and accreditation of ADM personnel.
The contract was signed by Julio Urzua, Global Projects Director of iRAP and Anouar Benazzouz, Director General of the Société during the closing session of the 4th International Conference on Sustainable Mobility and International Road Federation (IRF) Annual Conference in Marrakech last week.
ADM is Morocco’s national authority for the management of over 1,800 km of Moroccan highways which transport 432,000 vehicles daily.
“We are delighted to be commencing this first iRAP project in Morocco with ADM,” Julio Urzua said. “It is an exciting first step for MoroRAP as part of the shaping Memorandum of Understanding with the National Road Safety Agency (NARSA) and General Department of Roads (GDR) to work together, and with local partners, to eliminate high-risk roads in the country.”
Julio also presented during the one-day conference on the iRAP Methodology as an evidence-based KPI for road concessions and shared celebrated success in Brazil. He presented in a special session on “Enabling Meaningful Change Through Measurable Impact” along with other sustainable mobility experts from Hanshin Expressway Co. Ltd., International Bridge, Tunnel & Turnpike Association (IBTTA) and Valerann.
