An evaluation of local road safety in Great Britain: to evaluate the different plans and strategies; to asses what is being delivered and to identify and share areas of best practice.


Based on the Theory of Change the assessors considered what has changed, why, and the wider context.

Key Findings:

There has been a move from cluster-based investment towards route-based investment, often integrating risk-based assessments for targeted or vulnerable road user groups.Route based assessments are successfully using route based approaches to identify the nature, extent and scope of road safety problems. It is more difficult to measure outturn benefits (at least in the short term) for route based interventions.


Route based intervention, risk based analysis, vulnerable user groups


A high level evaluation, but offers a good overview and endorsement of a route-based approach to road safety interventions.
