Safety rating of England's trunk road network revealed
New studywhich aims to help make Britain’s roads ‘safest in world’ reveals that:
• two-thirds of English trunk road single carriageways rate 2-stars
• 78 per cent of dual carriageway network rate 3-stars
• 50 per cent of motorways reach the expected 4-star level
Two-thirds of England’s 1,600 km of single carriageway trunk roads win only a 2-star rating according to a report by the Road Safety Foundation which has inspected 95 per cent of the 7,000 km Highways Agency (HA) network in England. The network has been safety rated to an international Star Rating system being applied worldwide as part of a new approach by leading authorities to make road infrastructure safer.
