Road Safety Performance and Investment Opportunities – Britain’s Motorways and ‘A’ Roads
Crash Risk Mapping Results 2023
This year’s report tracks the safety performance of motorways and ‘A’ roads in Great Britain, These roads make up less than 13 per cent of the whole network, but almost 60 per cent of all fatal crashes and more than 40 per cent of serious road crashes occur on these roads.
The report shows how risk varies across the road network and provides commentary on approaches for prioritisation for investment. It identifies groups of routes that meet different value for money criteria depending on the network to which they belong. High-return road safety schemes are available across Great Britain, often with much better benefit-cost ratios than for other public sector investment.
