Gaist and TRL have announced a webinar taking place on 28th
October (11:00-12:00) on their latest partnership offering to improve road safety provision for highways network operators.
The International Road Assessment Programme (iRAP) Star Rating is a trusted, innovative approach to proactively managing risk on road networks. Delivered in the UK by TRL, the iRAP Star Rating provides a fundamentally a better way to identify cost effective packages of infrastructure improvements in comparison with the traditional, reactive management approach using road collision data.
A key benefit iRAP provides users is a detailed understanding of the specific road features that are potentially exposing road users to risks. It also proposes and quantifies the cost benefit of any changes that could be made to improve inherent road safety at specific locations
A winner of the 2020 Prince Michael Award for Road Safety, TRL have deployed iRAP multiple times on the National Highways strategic road network, alongside a number of local authority clients who trust it to give them the tools they need to reduce the number of people killed and seriously injured in road traffic collisions on their road network.
The value of the iRAP star rating has been maximised through a new integration with visual condition surveys from industry leaders in the provision of roadscape imagery and analysis, Gaist.
Gaist’s image capture techniques are highly developed, enabling users to view any aspect of their network with complete clarity. Captured in high definition at traffic speeds up to 70mph, Gaist provide imagery far surpassing limitations inherent in alternative dash cam solutions which prove suboptimal for the purpose of analysing the safety of road sections.
A key Gaist imagery retains fidelity at all speeds, presented in full 360 degree visibility and functionality, features key to effectively analysing road safety risk and important contextual factors.
The webinar will explore the benefits that the iRAP star rating system and associated imagery can bring to local and national highways authorities. Also discussed will be the latest developments in road safety brought to market by Gaist, giving a full view of the latest safety solutions for highways managers and safety teams.
