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.
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.

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.
