Malaysian IRAP launched

30 October 2019

iRAP, in association with the Malaysian Institute of Road Safety Research (MIROS), announced the launch of a Malaysia Road a Malaysia Road Assessment Programme (MyRAP).

The MyRAP programme aims to address the highest risk roads around the country in partnership with national and state agencies. The programme will be hosted by MIROS in association with local experts, using local research and resources, supported by the global International Road Assessment Programme that includes partners in more than 100 countries.

iRAP Managing Director, Strategic Projects Greg Smith said over 6,000 lives are lost each year1 due to road crashes in Malaysia and eliminating high risk roads is critical to injury reductions.

The success of local partnerships with the Ministry of Transport, Ministry of Works, Ministry of Housing and Local Government, JKR, Lembaga Lebuhraya Malaysia, PLUS Berhad, ANIH Berhad, JKJR, and Shell were documented in the iRAP Malaysia 2017 Report publishing the Star Rating results of Malaysian Inter-urban expressways.
