Local authorities on track to make England’s roads safer

21 August 2017

Fast progress has been made by the Road Safety Foundation (RSF), working in partnership with local authorities, to deliver safer ‘A’ roads in England.

In Autumn 2016 the RAC Foundation supported a pathfinder project to enable eight local authorities to survey, Star Rate and develop Safer Road Investment Plans (SRIPs) for eleven high risk A-road sections.

Soon after this work began, the Department for Transport (DfT) established the ‘Safer Roads Fund’ that will provide £175million capital investment to improve the safety on the 50 highest risk local ‘A’ road sections in England according to last year’s risk mapping analysis. The safer roads funding is for schemes being implemented from 2017/18 through to 2020/21.
