#RAPKnowledgeLive sessions are held monthly worldwide to discuss the latest knowledge on road safety tools, programmes and partnerships helping make global roads safer.
Our third #RAPKnowledgeLive session will be held at the end of June, highlighting the exciting updates to the Star Rating for Designs web app.
Star Rating for Designs (SR4D) is a process and evidence-based programme of applications informed by the iRAP Methodology which enable the objective measure, and improvement, of the level of road safety ‘built in’ to a road design for vehicle occupants, motorcyclists, pedestrians and cyclists, before the commencement of civil works.
SR4D enables road engineers and designers, municipalities and road authorities, funding agencies and governments to make roads safer.
Ensuring the safety of a road design before it clears the design phase directly equates to lives and serious injuries saved on the street. Despite knowledge and free tools to improve design safety, unsafe 1- and 2-star roads are still being built.
SR4D strengthens the road safety audit process, complementing it with an objective and repeatable qualification of road user risk (without the need for a high level of experience), and supports the wider potential of Star Ratings as a safety performance metric and maximised safety in road infrastructure investment.
SR4D will be essential to supporting countries to achieve the United Nations Global Road Safety Performance Targets, especially Target 3 to ensure all new roads are built to a 3-star or better standard for all road users.
In this session we will cover:
- All the new features that have been introduced
- A live demonstration of the web app
- Help you understand how the SR4D web app can help you achieve the UN Global Road Safety Performance Targets with a focus on Target 3 – ensuring all new roads are built to a 3-star or better standard for all road users.
Speakers will include:
