For the 18 years, the Road Safety Foundation has focused on leading the establishment of the European Road Assessment Programme (EuroRAP) in the UK and Europe, and more recently providing input into the International Road Assessment Programme (iRAP).
Since its inception in 1999, the Foundation has been the Active member of EuroRAP for the UK representing a model application of what can be achieved. Through its development of the national UK programme the Foundation plays a pivotal role in raising awareness and understanding of the importance of road infrastructure at all levels:
- Mapping and Performance Tracking: Publishing annually the EuroRAP performance measures showing trends and distribution of road safety risk across the GB road network which can be understood by the general public and policy makers.
- Guidance: Issuing guidance on the use of EuroRAP protocols and working with road authorities to improve the safety of the road infrastructure for which they are responsible
- Advocacy: Proposing the strategies and goals that the Government should set in order to save tens of thousands of lives and disabling injuries
More information on EuroRAP, including its objectives, partners, methodology and national results can be found at the EuroRAP website.
Publications produced by, or in association with, the Road Safety Foundation under the EuroRAP programme can be downloaded from our Library.
