Get the essentials for STAR RATING roads and road design

16 November 2018

iRAP Star Ratings are an internationally-recognised, evidence-based approach to measuring the level of safety that is ‘built in’ to a road for vehicle occupants, motorcyclists, bicyclists and pedestrians.

The United Nations (UN) Member States, through their Global Road Safety Performance Targets 3 and 4, and countries like Australia, New Zealand, Malaysia and the UK, have adopted Star Ratings as the metric to measure road infrastructure safety performance, inform safe road designs and upgrades, and save lives.
