The aims of the road safety management capacity review were to identify opportunities for increasing:

  • joint working
  • local innovation
  • efficiency on a national and local basis

The research:

  • examined national, regional and local structures, responsibilities, accountabilities, relationships and coordination
  • examined whether management effort and resources at all levels are being targeted effectively
  • assessed the current road safety delivery landscape against the safe system road safety management assessment framework
  • investigated how institutional capacity can be cost-effectively strengthened

This capability review was part of the original British road safety statement of 2015 and completed by SYSTRA.
