Star Rating Designs

Apart from assessing existing roads, Star Ratings are being used to ensure that safety is built-in to designs for upgrades and new roads prior to construction.

By providing a means of objectively measuring the impact on risk of various design iterations, the Star Rating design process is helping harness the potential of designers to find creative solutions to challenging safety problems.

For governments and development banks, the process opens the opportunity to set performance-based targets for vehicle occupants, motorcyclists, pedestrians and bicyclists that not only improve safety but create a high level of transparency and accountability.

The Star Rating design process has been successfully used in countries such as Moldova and India, in conjunction with existing mechanisms such as Road Safety Audits and highway design standards.
