National Highways exceeds England's Star Rating target
The Strategic Road Network Star Rating Report, released by National Highways, shows it exceeded its 2020 policy target to achieve 90% of travel on roads rated 3-star or better, with an impressive result of 96%.
National Highways uses iRAP’s Star Rating Protocol to measure how safe its roads are, undertaking independently assessed road network surveys every five years to calculate the star ratings.
The 2020 results were better than forecast when the 2015 results were published. Almost two-thirds of travel on National Highways’ network is now on 4-star roads when using Version 1.0 of the iRAP Model (the model version on which the 2020 target was set).
