Enhancing iRAP investment plans for vulnerable road users

29 April 2021

The Road Safety Foundation has received funding from the Road Safety Trust to help vulnerable road users.

The project will provide Local Authorities with a specialist resource to help understand the risks to vulnerable road users in towns and cities.  It will also help Local Authorities to understand the benefits of introducing different traffic measures to their urban areas to improve the environment for these users. 

The new resources will be freely available and will help authorities to better analyse their urban road networks and identify cost effective improvements targeted at reducing fatal and serious injuries in all user groups.

It will provide Local Authorities a greater suite of evidence-based countermeasure options to implement in Safer Roads Investment Plans for urban streets, particularly for those targeted at improving safety for vulnerable road user groups.

The improved tools will help authorities to better analyse their urban road networks and identify cost effective improvements targeted at reducing fatal and serious injuries.
