Evaluating progress to reach global 3 star level for new roads

2 March 2022

The World Bank Global Road Safety Facility (GRSF) and International Road Assessment Programme (iRAP) have commenced an innovative project to evaluate countries’ progress in achieving UN Target 3: that by 2030 , all new roads achieve technical standards for all road users that take into account road safety, or meet a 3-star rating or better.

Safe road infrastructure is a key focus of the Global Plan for the Decade of Action for Road Safety 2021-2030 which calls on all governments and partners to achieve the 12 UN Global Road Safety Performance Targets in their countries, of which Targets 3 and 4 relate to road infrastructure.

The multi-faceted two-year project will include a review of more than 10 completed priority road projects using existing iRAP assessment data and covering the full project lifecycle from planning, design, construction, operation and maintenance.
