Where we work

iRAP programmes and projects have now been undertaken by partners in more than 100 countries worldwide. 1.6 million km of Crash Risk Mapping and 1.4 million km of Star Rating assessments of existing roads and designs have now been completed.

Worldwide, iRAP and our regional ‘X’RAP programmes are influencing the safety of large-scale investment to the tune of over USD$30.6 billion in low and middle income countries and $49 billion in high income countries.

United KingdomHighEuropeThe UK was one of the four countries that founded the global RAP programme. 770,000km of roads have been assessed for their intrinsic safety quality so far, and every year the Road Safety Foundation publishes a crash risk map of all motorways and A roads in Great Britain. Over 1,000 people have been trained in the iRAP process across UK. National Highways undertakes an iRAP Star Rating assessment every 5 years. Recently published results showed the performance indicator for 90% of travel to be on 3-star or better roads by 2020 was surpassed, with 96% achieved. National Highways is using the iRAP approach throughout the organisation for strategic planning of investment, for prioritisation of routes to be treated, to help analyse routes and determine the best return options, and to ensure new designs are as safe as they can be. The Welsh Government is also undertaking their first full survey of their strategic roads. Based on the Road Safety Foundation’s crash risk mapping analysis, the Government launched a £100 million Safer Roads Fund to address safety on England’s 50 highest risk local A roads. The Safer Roads Fund should prevent over 1,450 fatal and serious injuries over the next 20 years, with a benefit of £550 million. Annual crash risk mapping shows a £1.4billion investment in safer roads in Great Britain could prevent over 11,000 fatal and serious injuries over the life of treatmentsBenefit Cost Ratio of 3.7

Case Studies of Success

iRAP is working with local partners to support large scale road upgrades around the world. See our Case Studies for great examples from countries around the world including Australia, Belize, China, El Salvador, India, Malaysia and Great Britain. These countries are leading the way in policy implementation and road investment that will be pivotal to achieving the goal of halving road deaths and injuries and ultimately achieving vision zero.

For example:

China: Through the Ministry of Transport “Highway Safety to Cherish Life” programme an estimated 105,000km of high risk roads have already been upgraded in China. USD$2.5 billion has been invested in safety countermeasures. Read more here.

India: IndiaRAP is a locally led, globally supported road assessment programme for India. It is a collaboration between iRAP and the Asian Institute of Transport Development (AITD), generously supported by FedEx Express. Together with National and State governments and the World Bank, investments to improve many of India’s roads have been locked into ongoing and planned upgrades worth more than US$5.4 billion. Read more here.

Mexico: The award winning work by the SCT in Mexico has raised 17% of the 42,800km road network from 1 or 2-star to 3-star or better. This had led to important reductions in fatalities and serious injuries across the network.

UK: Highways England has set a target for 90% of travel on the strategic road network to be 3-star or better and is investing in Smart Motorways. The Department for Transport has mobilised a ₤175 million programme to upgrade 50 of the highest risk local authority A roads based on risk maps, star ratings and user defined investment plans.
