Rural roads research

13 February 2015

The UK Department for Transport wants to understand the different international approaches to strategically prioritising physical road safety improvements in rural areas so as to achieve the maximum reduction in road accidents per £ spent.

This research is being commissioned with a view to using these findings to develop national good practice guidance and/or a decision making model for highway authorities.

The key tasks will be to

  • extract the key principles and approaches underlying each model or approach
  • advise on their suitability for use in desk based guidance and/or a modelling tool
  • highlight any gaps in knowledge or approach that would require further research.
