A great resource to help save lives on Indian Roads. Congratulations to the whole IndiaRAP team!
IndiaRAP, is the locally owned and led, globally supported road assessment programme tackling this vital public health issue. It has a vision for an India free of high risk roads. IndiaRAP was launched in 2017 as a collaboration between iRAP and the Asian Institute of Transport Development (AITD), generously supported by FedEx. IndiaRAP works with governments, development banks, mobility clubs, NGOs, research organisations and road safety stakeholders to make India’s roads safer – 3-star or better. It draws on local technical expertise and research from key national stakeholders including the Indian Road Congress, MoRTH, NHAI, IIT, CRRI and IAHE in addition to state-level partners. With the help of World Bank Global Road Safety Facility (GRSF) and Bloomberg Philanthropies, IndiaRAP is shaping government investment in safer road infrastructure across the country.
Improving 10% of India’s highest risk roads (332,041 km) to a 3-star or better standard would save over 76 lakh lives and serious injuries over the next 20 years.
